Call for Substitute Teachers Issued in California

SACRAMENTO, Calif., September 27, 2023--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Schools throughout California are struggling with teacher shortages. In an effort to help, Swing Education has launched a campaign to recruit substitute teachers so that schools will have enough staff to fill in for teacher vacancies.

"This call is for existing and new substitutes. Thousands of substitutes are needed in California and this is one way for new and experienced substitutes to help out in areas of great need," said Mike Teng, Co-CEO and Co-Founder of Swing.

Swing is a staffing marketplace connecting school districts with substitute teachers. It has been helping schools fill classroom vacancies since 2015. In the 2022-23 school year, Swing logged over one million instructional hours.
