  • Monday & Friday High Demand Pay: For our difficult to fill positions on Monday & Friday, the High Demand Sub Rate of $150 for a full day assignment is applicable if you accept the assignment AFTER 10:00 p.m. the day prior. The incentive is intended for our last-minute absences and will not apply to all Monday or Friday assignments. If your daily rate is equal to or more than the High Demand Sub Rate, there is no additional compensation applicable.



  • Substitute Bonus Program: In an effort to express appreciation to our frequent daily substitutes, we will be continuing our substitute bonus program for the fourth year, allowing you to receive a bonus of up to $1,000! Details of the program can be found here.
