RCS gives sub raises

Effective Jan. 1, 2019, substitutes serving Russellville City Schools will receive a 10-13 percent pay increase.

In July 2016 the RCS Board of Education partnered with Spur, formerly Appleton, to provide substitute teachers and substitute support staff. In October 2018, Spur announced new pricing for staffing services, which lowered costs for the district. RCS used the cost savings from the new pricing to increase pay rates for substitutes.

All current Spur employees working in positions where the pay increase applies will receive a notification with details of their new increased hourly pay rate.

For those who might be interested in joining Spur’s team to be substitutes at RCS, Spur will be holding a Worker Engagement and Recruitment Event Jan. 3, 2019, from 1-5 p.m. at the RCS Board of Education Central Office. Those interested can download the Spur app to apply. Those who wish to join the team while at the event will need to bring two forms of ID, as well as a credit card or money order for $30 payable to the Alabama State Board of Education, and Spur representatives will be happy to assist them with onboarding.

Applicants must have a clear Alabama State Department of Education background check, a valid substitute teaching license if needed and complete specified training in order to be eligible to pick up assignments within the district.

To complete the background check visit www.aps.gemalto.com/al/index_adeNew.htm. The substitute application can be found online at www.alsde.edu/sec/ec/Substitute/FORM%20SUB.pdf.
