Substitute Teacher Status Changing to Independent Contractor And the Impact on SPTRFA Members

St. Paul Public Schools recently announced that it has contracted with Teachers on Call to provide all substitute staffing. As a result, substitute teachers will no longer be employees of the District, but rather employees of Teachers on Call, an independent contractor.

Given that this is a recent change, we wanted to provide a brief summary of how this relates to your benefits and status with the St. Paul Teachers’ Retirement Fund Association (SPTRFA).
