Retired Fairfax County teachers who serve as substitutes in the system are likely getting a pay raise.
The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors will hold a public hearing on the action today at its regular meeting.
In July, County Executive Ed Long recommended that the school board approve staff recommendations from the County and Schools’ FY 2016 Carryover Review.
The school board, in the FY 2016 Carryover Review, increased the public school operating fund by $309,514 to increase the rate paid to substitute teachers who are Fairfax County Public School retired teachers.
The pay will go from $14.23 to $15.33 per hour for short-term assignments and from $20.14 to $21.91 per hour for long-term assignments.
State law allows the Board of Supervisors to act on proposed amendments to the budget on the same day as the public hearing.
