Denver Public Schools Asks Parents To Fill In As Subs

DPS Seeing Shortage After Pay For Substitutes Was Cut

Denver Public Schools is asking parents to fill in as substitute teachers.

The school district said it's so short of subs that it's writing to parents in hopes that they'll step in.

The shortage comes after daily pay for substitutes was cut from $120 to $81.

School officials say substitutes do not need teaching experience, just a college degree and a special certificate, which can be obtained.
