MCSD increases substitute teacher pay, adding to list of hiring incentives

The Marshalltown School Board approved an increase in substitute teacher pay at the Monday, Sept. 6 board meeting. 

As a result, the daily pay for substitutes will increase from $130 to $140. Additionally, substitute teachers will be able to earn an even higher pay rate – $160 per day – for substituting for 50 or more days in any one school year. 

Substitute teachers have the opportunity to develop healthy, positive, and educational relationships with Bobcat students. They can build their skills in important areas like instruction, public speaking, teamwork, community engagement, and more.

In addition to the increased in substitute pay, the Marshalltown CSD offers these exciting employment incentives:

  • A $2,500 relocation incentive for newly-hired teachers who choose to move to the District.
  • A  sign-on bonus of up to $5,000 for newly-hired K-12 special education teachers.
  • For certified teachers, our 10-year cap on pay for years of experience has been temporarily lifted, meaning you will receive credit on the salary schedule for each year of experience.
