Substitute Teacher Program

Reliable, quality substitute teachers are in high demand — and short supply. In fact, substitute teachers man 10 percent of all classrooms in public schools each day. By the time your students graduate, one full year of their instruction will have been provided by substitute teachers!

substitute teacher 3The Learning Lamp’s Substitute Teacher Program will transfer the administrative headache of recruiting, training and managing substitute teachers to us.

  • Partner school districts benefit from a 24/7 automated system that places subs, generates a larger pool of substitutes, and enables districts to select proven, high-quality subs for preferred scheduling.
  • Because substitutes are employees of The Learning Lamp and no longer considered school district staff, retired teachers can substitute in a public school without threatening the benefits they receive through the Public School Employees’ Retirement System.
  • It also offers schools an affordable way to comply with health insurance requirements for part-time employees under the Affordable Care Act.

In addition, the Substitute Teacher Program includes training designed to increase the skill sets of substitute teachers.

If your district is ready to leave behind the time-consuming and costly process of recruiting subs and filling teacher absences, call us. Contact Educational Programs Director Jona Duppstadt at 814-262-0732 x 224 or jduppstadt@thelearninglamp.org today to schedule an informational meeting.
