CREC and Source4Teachers Partner to Provide Substitute Teachers and Staff to Connecticut School Districts

November 2, 2015

(Hartford, CT) – CREC and Source4Teachers are partnering to provide highly-qualified substitute teachers, paraeducators, and other support staff to local school districts.

“CREC is always looking to find better, more efficient, and more cost-effective ways to help Connecticut’s school districts,” said Margaret MacDonald, director of CREC Technical Assistance and Brokering Services. “We are excited to announce our partnership with Source4Teachers. While districts will benefit by employing highly qualified substitutes, there are also many other, less obvious benefits. For example, there is an ongoing training program for substitutes hired through Source4Teachers and the company provides and manages health benefits for substitutes, ensuring compliance with the Affordable Care Act. Source4Teachers offers one-stop shopping for all educational substitute needs. Overall, this new partnership can only help districts employ the best substitute teachers, paraeducators, and educational staff.”

In line with CREC’s ongoing mission to support and provide resources to school districts in Connecticut, this new partnership aims to bring awareness to the services Source4Teachers can provide, specifically saving districts time, money, and valuable personnel resources.

“Source4Teachers is pleased to be working with CREC and eager to serve the students, parents, and communities in Connecticut,” said Source4Teachers President Kendley Davenport. “This relationship will yield continuity of care for students, create jobs for the community, and cut down on the administrative burden and unwelcome costs for districts. Ultimately, the partnership enables the district to focus on what it does best—delivering a quality education.”

Established in 2000, Source4Teachers is a leading educational staffing firm that specializes in the provision and coordination of substitute teachers and other substitute personnel to kindergarten through grade 12 school districts. The company is currently working with Bridgeport Public Schools, a district that has more than 30 schools and serves an estimated 23,000 students.
