Westonka News

  • Support Our Schools by Becoming a Substitute Teacher

    Westonka Schools is anticipating that the district will need a larger pool of substitute teachers in order to operate school this fall. Therefore, Westonka is asking all community members to consider supporting their local schools by becoming a short call sub for the district. We have increased the Short Call Substitute Teacher rate of pay to $175.00/day during the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, Westonka will reimburse the PELSB licensure fee ($91.95) once you have subbed for five full days in a Westonka assignment. If you or someone you know is interested in being a short call substitute teacher, the time to start the application process is now!
