Belvidere (WREX) — Some teachers will get a boost in their pay checks after the school board approved a pay hike at Tuesday Night's board meeting.

The vote tonight closing with five votes of approval to none of disapproval, with two board members not voting due to affiliations with district substitutes.

Instead of making $110 per day, those teachers will now make $115.

That equals out to just over $14 an hour.

Substitute teachers can make even more money if they sub for at least 50 days.

Retired teachers who choose to sub will make even more money.

After the 75th day worked, the sub would receive an additional bonus of $250.

Increase Long Term sub rate (15 or more consecutive days) from $130 to $140.
