Book a Sub: Revolutionizing How School Districts Find Substitute Teachers

Substitute teachers are a pivotal part of any school.  While certified classroom teachers need to be away to recover from an illness, take care of family matters, or participate in professional development opportunities substitutes are there to swoop in and save the day.  When you need to find a substitute, whether it’s last minute or weeks in advance, you have a few important requirements: first, students need to safely be in a classroom with a qualified adult; second, subs should be easily booked and accessed; and third, subs should be at the correct location at the right time and follow the plans left behind by the classroom teacher.  Sounds easy enough, right? Finding qualified subs and contacting, scheduling, and managing them is hard work–work that no one has time for.

Book a Sub has got these basics covered.  Their online substitute service is an on-demand substitute teacher solution.  They hire local qualified substitute teachers and connect them to your school so they’re available for when you input absences.  So not only do you have a sub to fill in for your absent teacher, but it’s accomplished with minimal effort. Enter the information for the absence to include time, date, place, and details, and an available substitute will be matched.  You’ll know when the job has been filled and you won’t need to do anything else except verify the sub completed the job.
