    NOTE: If you are a LTS for a Junior Senior High School Teacher and you are covering a 6th period assignment, you are entitled to extra compensation for that additional period.  Please check with building administration to make sure you have been board approved to cover the 6th period class and receive the additional stipend.

    Your pay will be based on a scale contingent on how many consecutive days you are in the LTS assignment.   If you are in a LTS assignment for 41 consecutive days or more, you qualify to receive BA/1 pay which is retroactive back to the first day of your LTS assignment.   6th Period pay will also be added to your salary if the teacher you’re a LTS for is currently holding that position.

    If the teacher you are replacing GOES OFF PAYROLL and your assignment exceeds 41 days, you qualify to be paid on your natural step and level pay at the time at that time, you must provide a sealed transcript to Personnel showing your educational status (ie: Bachelor degree and additional credits or Master’s degree) Step and Level pay is based on current ESMTA salary schedule.    6th Period pay will also be added to your salary if the teacher you’re a LTS for is currently holding that position.

     

    If you have taken a leave of absence as a Teaching Assistant or Permanent Substitute Teacher to take a Long-Term Substitute Teacher position, you will be returning back to that position, not necessarily that specific assignment, when your LTS assignment ends.

    NOTE: If the teacher that you are a L/R for teaches a 6th period teacher, you will also cover that assignment.

    Typically, a leave replacement for a teacher occurs when a teacher is off payroll for the duration of their leave of absence.   6th Period pay will also be added to your salary if the teacher you’re a leave replacement for is currently holding that position.

    Leave Replacement pay will be based on your natural step and level which is determined by your educational status.  You must provide transcripts to Personnel to validate that you have received your Bachelor degree or your Master’s degree.  Rates are based on current ESMTA salary schedule and your educational status.  6th Period pay will also be added to your salary if the teacher you’re a leave replacement for is currently holding that position.

    If you have taken a leave of absence as a Teaching Assistant or Permanent Substitute Teacher to take a Leave Replacement Teacher position, you will be returning back to that position when your L/R assignment ends.
