Part-time teachers for the Uinta County School District Number One are recruited and hired in the same manner as full-time certificated personnel. Part-time personnel are eligible for fringe benefits with the district paying a proportionate amount of the insurance premiums. (Example: if a teacher works three days per week, the district will pay 3/5ths of the insurance coverage.) Employees who are paid by the hour may apply for district insurance coverage, but must pay the total cost of the insurance premiums.
Certificated employees who are employed as regular classroom teachers (not as substitutes), but who start work after the school year has begun and work for less than a full year, will receive as their total compensation (including summer months) as many 1/180ths of the annual salary agreed upon as there are days taught. No teacher shall come under this provision who teaches less than one full school month.
The district office shall maintain a list of substitute teachers available for substitute teaching. Each building principal will be given a list of teachers qualified for their school’s grade level.
Any teacher who must be absent will inform the principal in advance, if possible, so that the principal may select an appropriate substitute to replace the regular teacher. Emergency absences, such as those due to accidents or illness, shall be handled by the principal. Teachers are not allowed to hire substitutes for any reason and all substitutes will be paid by the central office only.
Substitute teachers’ rates of pay are set by the Board (see GCBA). After 45 days of continuous assignment, a substitute may be put on a different salary scale, depending upon the qualifications of the substitute and on the number of days he is expected to continue working as a substitute.
NOTE: Substitute permit holders are permitted to teach a maximum of 45 days in any one teaching assignment per semester during the absence of a regularly certified and employed teacher because of that teacher’s temporary inability to perform normal teaching duties. Any part of one day taught by the substitute will be counted as one full day for the purpose of the 45-day provision. (Teacher Certification Regulations for Wyoming Public Schools, 9/1/74.)
