During a special meeting of the Mountain Home School Board Tuesday evening, the board approved a change in the way substitute teachers are trained and scheduled. The district has hired Loretta Allen for a newly created position of substitute coordinator. Superintendent Dr. Jake Long says the change will streamline the process.
The Mountain Home superintendent says the change also gives them more control on the local level.
With the change also comes a raise for substitute teachers in the Mountain Home district with the pay increasing to up to $76 per day, and there will be a reduction in the amount of fees substitutes have to pay.
Long says substitute teachers account for about $500,000 of the budget per year, with around 100 people filling the spots.
Several personnel moves were made and are available by clicking here.
Also during the special meeting, the board held an employee hearing in closed session, but no action was taken.
