Kansas District Hires Personnel Firm to Manage Substitute Teaching Staff

Following the lead of 48 other states, Kansas has now started to use a personnel firm to manage the hiring and use of substitute teachers. Well, at least Eudora 491 is, on a trial basis. The contract, approved at a December board meeting, means that the district will rely on the Morgan Hunter Companies from February until May. Presumably, the district will evaluate the situation after that.

District administrators praise several benefits of the arrangement. It will mean increased work possibilities for retired teachers, who won’t run afoul of regulations restricting their work. It also means less paperwork for district administrative staff.

One of the largest commercial providers of teacher staffing is Kelly Educational Staffing, a division of Kelly Services.
