Substitute Teacher Program

We provide 17 Pennsylvania districts with high-quality subs throughout the school year.  If your district is ready to leave behind the time-consuming and costly process of recruiting subs and filling teacher absences, call us.

Leave the Challenges to Us
Our Substitute Teacher Program transfers the administrative headache of recruiting, training and managing substitute teachers from you 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 Ignite Education Solutions and not 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.

Our Substitute Teacher Program also includes training to increase the skill sets of substitute teachers.
