5.1 Job-Related Training

The District recognizes the need for the continuing education of substitute teachers. Part of this continuing education may be achieved through orientation meetings and mandatory training sessions for substitutes. Should the District require substitutes to attend such orientation/ mandatory training sessions, the substitutes will be compensated at the rate of $25.00 per two hour session, or a proration thereof, for their attendance at such meetings. Whenever feasible, the District will schedule the orientation sessions in the fall.

When the District deems it appropriate, each per diem substitute may participate in teacher inservice day programs in the schools. Per diem substitutes shall be paid at their regular salary for inservice participation. Long-term substitutes may be required to attend inservice days and will receive their daily rate.

Substitutes may voluntarily participate in staff training programs sponsored through the District on space available basis. Such participation shall not be during the school day or with pay.
