District 181 adds Aesop to help with substitute teacher shortage

Hinsdale-Clarendon Hills Elementary District 181 is considering additional steps to find more substitute teachers, after an increase in pay nine months ago didn't do the trick. The District 181 Board voted Jan. 27 to increase pay for substitutes to $95 from $84 a day, and to $114 from $100.92 for retired District 181 teachers. The increase in pay came after there was a severe shortage of substitutes during the 2013-14 school year. However, because of continued difficulties in finding enough substitute teachers, the district had 45 absences that were not covered between the start of the 2014-15 school year and Oct. 27.
