Boosting substitute teacher pay, an update on the Local Control Accountability Plan, and the re-opening of Dover Middle School as a K-8 campus are open for discussion by the Fairfield-Suisun Unified leaders.
Tonight, trustees are expected to approve a hike in substitute teacher pay, raising the pay of a day-to-day substitute to $160 per day; a “trained,” or credentialed, substitute to $170; a long-term substitute to $185; a retired district teacher who substitutes to $195; Adult School substitute pay to $22.07 per hour; and “permit teacher” substitute (providing service to the state preschool program) pay to $17 per hour.
The district’s assistant superintendent for educational services, Rona Portalupi will offer an overview of the district’s 117-page LCAP, essentially a master plan, part of Gov. Jerry Brown’s Local Control Funding Formula, that governs all district spending and specifically lays out how educators will teach “subgroups,” such as ethnic minorities, English language learners and foster youth — and how their progress will be measured.
