LA VERNIA -- Pay for substitute teachers in the La Vernia Independent School District (ISD) will increase for the 2013-14 school year. The increase was approved during the July 22 regular school board meeting.

Board members Janice Gimbel, David Watson, Janette Chall, Kimi Kravitz, and Cody Miller voted unanimously to raise the pay rate from $58 to $65 per day for non-degreed substitutes; $65 to $75 for degreed substitutes; and $65 to $100 per day for substitutes with a degree and teacher certification.

According to Superintendent Tom Harvey, the increase in pay should encourage the best substitutes to work for La Vernia ISD. This also allows the administration to see how well substitutes work in the classroom, to possibly consider them for future hire.

“This would be a real smooth move,” board President Miller said. “If we could use [the pay increase] to get a better quality of subs, I’m all for it.”

Also at the meeting, the board approved revisions to Harvey’s employment contract.

According to the superintendent after the meeting, some specific clauses in the contract needed clarifying. In addition, he agreed to removal of a section in the previous contract, calling for an annual increase in salary.

“This was acceptable for me, as I have declined pay raises during the times that my staff did not get raises anyway,” he said.
