CHERRY HILL, N.J., June 1, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Source4Teachers, a leading national provider of educational managed service solutions for pre-kindergarten through 12th grade school districts, announced today that it has added ten new school districts for the 2017-2018 school year.
"This is a testament to the hard work our substitutes and other staff are putting in each and every day," said Kendley Davenport, chief executive officer at Source4Teachers. "Without their dedication to maintaining continuity for students and making sure that every student has a qualified, capable adult in their classroom, we wouldn't be seeing this level of growth."
With the new additions, Source4Teachers is now on pace to fill more than 1.8 million substitute teachers and support staff absences for their 290 education partners across nine states next year. The organization recruits, screens, trains, hires, places, and manages applicants looking to serve as substitutes in school districts, schools and learning centers.
Source4Teachers' new partners for 2017-2018 include:
- New Milford School District – Litchfield County, CT
- Brooks County School District – Brooks County, GA
- Thomasville City Schools – Thomas County, GA
- Fairfield Township Schools – Cumberland County, NJ
- High Bridge School District – Hunterdon County, NJ
- West Long Branch Public Schools – Monmouth County, NJ
- South River Public Schools – Middlesex County, NJ
- Providence School District – Providence County, RI
- Clover School District – York County, SC
- Hanover Area School District – Luzerne County, PA
For each of their partners, Source4Teachers introduces SAMS, a proprietary online management system which records absences and secures substitutes. When contracts are initiated, an implementation team is deployed to conduct trainings at each individual school with the entire teacher population. As a result, absences are then logged into SAMS, providing real-time data for administrators to track their annual substitute budgets.
"It's becoming increasingly challenging for administrators to manage substitutes on their own," Mr. Davenport said. "We're able to not only handle the recruitment and training, but also the real-time placement of staff members. That's a real benefit to our partners because it means one less thing to worry about."
Today's announcement comes after a string of recent milestones which indicate extraordinary momentum. Last August, Source4Teachers moved into the nation's top ten fastest-growing staffing firms for the first time, placing seventh on the Staffing Industry Analysts' (SIA) 2016 List. In November, Mr. Davenport was named a recipient of the 2017 Future 50 Awards by Philadelphia SmartCEO, an honor which recognizes Greater Philadelphia's 50 fastest-growing mid-sized companies as demonstrated by a combined three-year average of revenue and employee growth. Most recently, Source4Teachers was named to Forbes Magazine's Best Large Employers 2017 list.
"I'm thrilled by our trajectory," Mr. Davenport said. "As we continue to reach more classrooms, we continue to sharpen our systems and processes to make things more streamlined for our partners. They've come to rely on us for an important task, and we're honored to be charged with the responsibility."
Recognized with several awards for its entrepreneurial vision and growth, Source4Teachers has become a national leader in the educational services space. They are two-time recipients of the Philadelphia Business Journal's South Jersey Entrepreneur Award and have received the Best Place to Work Award from both the Philadelphia Business Journal and South Jersey Biz magazine.
