New Prairie is currently seeking new substitute teachers to join our team!
Substitute Teacher Pay
Our daily pay rates for substitutes have increased. We now offer:
$68 daily pay rate for subs with a HS diploma
$75 daily pay rate for subs with a college degree
$90 daily pay rate for Licensed Teacher Subs
Bonus System Implementation
Our subs work hard and we think consistency should be rewarded. Starting with the 2019-2020 school year, we are pleased to announce a new incentive program allowing substitute teachers to receive bonuses.
A substitute who works 25-49 full days in a semester will receive a one time bonus of $300
A substitute who works 50+ full days in a semester will receive a one time bonus of $600
*For those who have already substitute taught for this year, this will be retroactively paid from the beginning of the 2019-2020 school year.*
If you are interested in becoming a substitute teacher, please apply online here or contact the Central Office with questions at (574) 654 – 7273.

This is a follow up to our 2018-2019 school calendar and to clarify where we are with school cancellations and the end of our current school year. Tuesday, February 12th, was the last of the five E-Learning days approved for use by the NPUSC school board for this school year. Any further school cancellations will need to be added to the end of the school year as a make up day.
Also, the NPUSC school board has determined that E-Learning days will be used for no more than three consecutive instructional days. You may recall NPUSC used E-Learning days on January 25th, 28th, and 29th. We also had to cancel school January 30th and 31st due to inclement weather, but did not use E-Learning Days on these two dates. As a result, the January 30th and 31st cancellations will be made up on May 23rd and 24th.
Finally, any school cancellation days after today, February 12th, will need to be made up after Memorial Day beginning on May 28th.
I hope this helps clarify where we are with E-Learning and school cancellation days for the 2018-2019 school year. Please feel free to contact our administration office with any questions.
NPUSC invites parents and community members to a meeting about the school wellness policy on 1/15/2019 at the NPUSC Central Office a 5327 N. Cougar Rd. New Carlisle, IN. Having healthy choices at school helps keep our children healthy and ready to learn. The school wellness policy helps our school create an action plan for nutrition and physical activity at school.
