VIT (Very Important Teacher) Program

Harper Creek Community Schools, in partnership with PESG, is pleased to introduce the Very Important Teacher Program (VIT) for substitute teachers.  The basics of the VIT Program are that sub teachers can receive a bonus based on the amount of days they work at Harper Creek during each month of school.  We are hopeful that this extra incentive for substitute teachers will encourage them to choose Harper Creek.
The bonuses are as follows:

A $100 bonus will be given for working the equivalent of 10 full or half days in a given month.

A $225 bonus will be given for working the equivalent of 15 full or half days in a given month.

A $400 bonus will be given for working the equivalent of 20 full or half days in a given month.

This bonus program is effective throughout the 2016-17 school year.  All bonuses will be calculated after the month's end and will be paid out the following month to all qualifying individuals.

Long-term subs will qualify for this bonus during their first 20 days only.

No registration is necessary--subs just need to work!
