Sub teacher raises and vendor contracts on VCUSD agenda – Times Herald

By Rachel Raskin-Zrihen

A raise for substitute teachers and another slew of contracts Vallejo City Unified School District officials want approved fill the agenda for the school board’s meeting Wednesday.

The trustees are being asked to approve a restructuring of substitute pay to a tiered model with $160 for daily subs, $170 daily for long-term subs and $205 daily for retiree subs.

The district has had problems finding subs, so, in an effort to make the district more competitive with surrounding school districts, the staff is proposing increasing substitute pay. This is expected to cost about $2.3 million.

The agenda also includes what amounts to an appeal for one contract denied at the last meeting.

As part of the superintendent’s report, Chief Academic Officer Cheri Summers will offer what amounts to an appeal of the board’s decision to deny implementation of Imagine Learning, Inc. at the Aug. 1 meeting. That contract would have provided 2018-19 school year licenses to support language, literacy, and math strategy developments for all K-5 students, and especially English Learners, students performing significantly below grade level and students with gaps in specific concepts and skills. Principals and other staff members have requested the opportunity to address the board about the impact of this action.
