Welcome to the Watertown School District!

We would like to welcome you to the Watertown School District as a substitute teacher.  We count on you to help students learn in the absence of the classroom teacher.  We believe that it is vital for our substitutes to be prepared prior to entering the classroom.  This handbook is to help with that process.

  The Watertown School District is a wonderful place to work!  The friendly teachers, administrators, paraprofessionals, and students help to make our District the best it can be.  The District has 3800 students, and includes five elementary schools, one Middle School, one High School, and a Special Service Center.  The Watertown School District also is a part of the Lake Area Multi District, a technical high school that provides additional learning opportunities for our high school students.  The District also includes Lake Area Technical Institute, which is home to 1200 post secondary students studying over 24 technical programs.

  Serving as a K-12 substitute is a very challenging task.  We depend on you to ensure that students learn while they are in your supervision.  We believe our District is one of the best in the state, and we count on you to help us achieve our mission “Enabling all students to succeed in an ever-changing world.”

Substitute rate of pay for the 2016-2017 is be $13.00 per hour for non-certified personnel.  Certified personnel will earn $15.00 per hour, and long-term subs will receive $16.50 per hour.  Subsitutes for other personnel (classroom paraprofessionals, nutrition services, transportation, etc.) shall be paid at the appropriate hourly rate of the position to which they are assigned. Please contact the business office if you have any questions.

If you have any questions, please give us a call at (882-6312) or the building principals listed in the handbook.  We look forward to our work together. 

  Sincerely,

Lesli Jutting
Superintendent

The superintendent or designee shall prepare and maintain a list of qualified

Substitute teachers for the Watertown School District.  A person may be added to

the substitute teaching list after completing a written application, fingerprinting,

teachers shall be defined in two categories:

  *  A "certified substitute teacher" is a teacher who has completed an

  approved course of study as a teacher and currently holds a valid

  teaching certificate or an expired teaching certificate.

  *  A "non-certified substitute teacher" is a person without teacher

  training, but has the equivalent of two years of post secondary

  coursework, and/or experience working with children.

Substitute teachers shall be paid an hourly rate.  Certified substitutes will be paid

$15.00 per hour, and non-certified substitutes will be paid $13.00 per hour.  For

long term assignments which extend beyond 20 days, the substitute shall be paid

$16.50 per hour.  Fulltime teachers who choose to substitute during their

planning time shall be paid $16.50 per hour.  Substitutes who take an additional

teaching assignment during the normal planning time of the teacher they are

substituting for will receive an additional $11.50 for that extra duty.

 

Substitutes for other personnel (classroom paraprofessionals, nutrition service,
