“Within a day of signing the contract we already had a substitute position filled. The system is so user-friendly and easy to use that our teachers were able to utilize it without any formal training, although Swing has provided our staff with two separate trainings just in case we had any questions.”

Laura Wilson
School Director, Pioneer Prep

“We have been able to craft a group that works best for our school by using the favorites list. So when we have educators from Swing and they’ve worked really well with our students, we can put them on our list and keep them coming back very regularly.”

Pamela Merkerson
Director of Talent Management – Paul Public Charter School

“There are definitely time savings. In peak times when there are a lot of teachers sick or out for different reasons, we’re saving a few hours a week managing substitute teachers with Swing as opposed to when we used to have to do it.”

Christine Fairless
School Director – St. Paul’s Episcopal School
