SCOTCH PLAINS-FANWOOD, NJ -- Scotch Plains-Fanwood public schools have increased the Substitute Teacher daily pay rate to $105, effective January 1, 2021. All current and incoming substitute teachers will receive the per diem rate of $105.00.  

“Substitute Teachers play a vital role in our schools. Investing in them at this time is a win-win for everyone. We are focused on hiring new substitutes to increase the pool of already great substitutes that work in our district.” Peter N. Pitucco, Director of Human Resources.

In an effort to support Substitute Teachers during hybrid and virtual learning we have created a Google Training and Resources website for our Substitutes. This resource is dedicated to training and supporting our district Substitutes during virtual learning and beyond.
