Swing Education Expands its Substitute Teaching Solution to Arizona

Industry News
Schools and districts across the state can now fill substitute teacher shortages using company’s web-based app and network of highly qualified educators

 

SAN MATEO, Calif., April 9, 2019—Swing Education, an on-demand marketplace for substitute teachers, has expanded its services to help schools and districts across Arizona connect with qualified educators using the company’s web-based platform. In addition to Arizona, Swing Education is now helping to address the substitute teacher shortage in California, New Jersey, New York, Tennessee, Texas, and Washington, D.C.

“Swing Education marries the two methods schools currently use to find substitutes—staffing agencies that provide substitute teachers to schools and technology companies that offer software for schools to manage their own substitutes—to provide a complete substitute teaching solution,” said Mike Teng, CEO of Swing Education. “We look forward to supporting more and more schools throughout Arizona by providing them with on-demand access to high-quality substitute teachers for their classrooms.”

Swing Education helps to relieve the burden of substitute teacher hiring and screening, as well as substitute teacher management, for schools and districts. Its web app, which schools use to connect with substitute teachers, features a clear, accessible, and easy-to-use interface that accommodates users of all kinds no matter their backgrounds, age levels, and tech savviness. With the platform, administrators can reach hundreds of substitute teachers without ever picking up the phone.

“We had used a staffing service before, but were always in a crunch for substitutes. When positions went unfilled we’d have to pull a paraprofessional in to sub, or split classes which increased the class sizes and negatively impacted the students,” said Jacki Stroup, associate director of Pioneer Preparatory School in Phoenix, which started using Swing this year. “Swing has been a blessing. The subs pick up positions immediately, and Swing builds a rapport with the subs that carries over to the schools. Their subs are responsive and professional. The platform is easy to use and we’ve been able to keep all of our positions filled.”
