8 General Information A. Pay 1. The pay for a substitute teacher is based on the scale on page # 9. Substitute teachers are not paid on an hourly basis. Rather, depending on the job assignment, you are paid a predetermined half-day or full-day amount on a per diem basis. By signing in to KRONOS, you are acknowledging the District has only offered to employ you for the time articulated in the job assignment. 2. Attached are the Bi-Weekly Payroll due dates and pay dates for the Bi-Weekly Payroll. Days worked after these dates will be included in the subsequent payroll. 3. It is advisable for a substitute to keep a log of dates, times, and schools in which he/ she substitutes so that he/she may easily verify his/her check at the end of each payroll period. 4. Substitute checks will be mailed to your home address. B. Punching In to KRONOS 1. In order to accept a job assignment, you must punch in to KRONOS AT LEAST FIFTEEN (15) MINUTES BEFORE THE JOB ASSIGNMENT IS TO COMMENCE. For a full day assignment, you must punch in twice: once in the morning and once in the afternoon to signify your acceptance of the full day assignment.
