Moline-Coal Valley schools consider cash incentives to combat sub shortage

The Moline-Coal Valley School Board will vote on the measure Monday, Jan. 10.

MOLINE, Ill. — On Monday, Jan. 10, Moline-Coal Valley School District will vote on new substitute teacher incentives while continuing to "experience a substitute shortage," according to the district. 

The district joins many across the nation looking to combat the shortage with a new series of monetary incentives. They include a $300 bonus each time a substitute teacher teaches a total of 20, 40, 60 and 80 days, for a cumulative total up to $1,200.

If the measure is passed on Monday during the School Board Meeting, substitute teachers could start counting days beginning Tuesday, Jan. 18.

Superintendent Rachel Savage signed off on the measure on Jan. 6, and it will now go to the board for approval.
