Like many school districts across the country, Central Point School District needed to find a larger pool of available classified staffing substitutes to fill in during absences. So in 2020, after managing their own substitute pool for years, Central Point School District recognized the need to create district-wide efficiencies and partnered with Edustaff to provide quality educational staffing and Human Resource services.

Working side-by-side with Edustaff, Central Point School District’s HR team has implemented an array of best practices and now consistently provides employees who are well-trained and motivated.

The district saves thousands of dollars each year as a direct result of its partnership with Edustaff, and has seen an improvement ins everal HR efficiencies.

Edustaff manages the full sub pool from background checks and training through to payroll. This has allowed their HR department to focus on other tasks. Edustaff’s extensive marketing and advertising has helped recruit more classified staffing substitutes and fill more assignments. Edustaff reaches out to potential substitutes through social media, billboards, TV, yard signs and online job boards.

Edustaff also created a targeted recruiting plan to focus just on classified positions, hosting events at Goodwill Job Connection, WorkSource, and local colleges. Edustaff is also building relationships with parents and Spanish-speakers to increase the pool of bilingual Educational Assistants.

The result? The sub pool of new hires grew by 154 in the first year of Edustaff’s contract with Central Point and again by 192 in its third year, bringing increased fill rates (Teachers 92%) even as the total number of absences rose from 9,260 to 15,464 those years.

“Central Point School District has partnered with Edustaff to provide substitute services to our schools. Their expertise and focus on recruiting and training substitutes has been a great support to our district. They have been a pleasure to work with and are very responsive.”
