ESS provides solutions for the following workforce groups and positions:

  • Substitutes for teachers and clerical / support staff
  • Substitute teacher’s aides

Based on recent research, teacher absentee rates across the country are eleven days annually on average. If you combine that with student absenteeism, it appears reasonable, if the substitute is merely a means of supervision, that students could miss at least two weeks of qualified instruction per year. And, that is an average, so some school districts will realize significantly higher absenteeism.

We know that schools work hard to recruit qualified teachers and support staff, but it’s not easy. You need a teammate who is solely focused on this effort. School districts across the country are facing teacher shortages. We can assist schools with these challenges to ensure students receive a quality experience while removing significant burdens from stressed human resources teams and support staff. ESS wants to help. We are continuously developing a network of available staff nationwide to meet your staffing needs and will work diligently to optimize fill rates with a database of qualified staff who deliver high quality instruction supported by ample administrative and management support.
