The Yankton School Board has approved a substitute teacher pay increase and a bus driver incentive plan.
Yankton School Superintendent Dr. Wayne Kindle says finding substitute teachers and bus drivers this year has been a real challenge…
The bus driver incentive plan has been implemented for recruitment and retention of bus drivers due to the shortage caused by the pandemic. All bus drivers in good standing that complete the school year are eligible for an incentive stipend.
Substitute teachers without a teacher certification will now get paid one hundred twenty dollars per day. Certified substitutes will now be compensated one hundred sixty dollars per day.
