Substitute teachers, bus drivers and nurses are in high demand across Virginia and the U.S.

to cover short and long-term staff absences and provide continuity for students.

Recognizing that these high-demand roles make a significant impact on school operations and ultimately, the education of WJCC students, the school board voted to approve a pay increase effective January 1, 2023 through the end of the school year.

A new rate was also added: Certified teachers who substitute in the classroom will earn $200 daily. WJCC Schools is excited to add more former teachers to its substitute pool to enhance the work of our substitute educators.
