Source4Teachers Partners With Atlantic City School District
Substitute teacher provider will now serve its fourth District partner in Atlantic County
CHERRY HILL, NJ – Following an overwhelming success across the Garden State, Source4Teachers – a leading national provider of educational managed service solutions for pre-kindergarten through 12th grade school districts – today announced that it has entered into an agreement with Atlantic City Schools to manage the District’s daily and long term substitute teacher programs in their entirety.
Atlantic City Schools mark the fourth Atlantic County school district Source4Teachers will now serve.
“We’re pleased to be working with Source4Teachers –a company that has a long history of successes in dozens of school districts throughout the state of New Jersey and beyond,” said Paul Spaventa, Interim Superintendent at the Atlantic City Board of Education. “Source4Teachers is very much part of the community and a true supporter of the Atlantic City Board of Education. We look forward to leveraging their expertise to develop a strong and stable substitute program.”
The partnership calls for Source4Teachers to recruit, screen, train, hire, place, and manage applicants looking to be substitutes in Atlantic City School District’s ten schools. The organization will implement a new online substitute management portal, Aesop, which will allow full-time teachers and staff to log their absences electronically and fill their vacancies with greater ease. Previously the District – which averaged 70-100 daily absences last year – managed its own substitute program.
Those interested in joining Source4Teachers, including both current Atlantic City substitutes and those looking to serve for the first time, may apply online at Source4Teachers.com. Additionally, there will be three hiring events at which attendees will be provided more information about the organization, specific job requirements, the hiring and training processes, positions available and pay rates:
- Monday, August 8th: 9:30AM – 11:00AM; 11:00AM – Noon; 1:00PM – 2:30PM
- Tuesday, August 9th: 9:30AM – 11:00AM; 11:00AM – Noon; 1:00PM – 2:00PM
- Wednesday, August 10th: 9:30AM – 11:00AM; 11:00AM – Noon; 1:00PM – 2:30PM
All events will be held at MLK School, 1700 Marmora Avenue, Atlantic City, NJ 08401.
Future hiring events will be published on the school district website (www.acboe.org), on the Source4teachers website (source4teachers.com) and the Source4Teachers’ Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/Source4Teachers/). Source4Teachers
All existing substitutes will be offered continuing employment under the terms of the new agreement, which include the same pay rates the District paid last year and weekly payments for employees.
“Source4Teachers is pleased to work with the Atlantic City School District and is eager to serve the students, parents and community, who we know have been through a lot as of late,” said Andy Hall, Chief Operating Officer at Source4Teachers. “This is our home state, so it means a lot to us. We look forward to improving continuity of care for students, cutting down on the administrative burden for teachers and staff and improving overall operational efficiencies for the District.”
