Explain It Like I'm Nine: Low Substitute Fill Rates
Can’t find enough substitute teachers to cover teacher absences? Seems...
Renton School District’s mission is for each student to graduate with options, fully prepared to participate in our democracy. Finding, hiring and retaining great teachers are the first steps toward achieving their mission of preparing students for the future.
But the Human Resources department relied on a cumbersome paper-based system to manage their recruitment and hiring. It was heavy work, tough to keep up with and time-consuming. Data on hiring trends was not readily available, and the staff had to request reports from the developer of their HR system to get it.
Not only that, but a teacher shortage in the area often left several positions unfilled at the beginning of each school year. Clearly, it was time for a change — and for Renton School District, Frontline Recruiting & Hiring was the answer.
“We wanted to be able to go from start to finish and have it all there, and that’s what Frontline Recruiting & Hiring has, the best system by far that could take us from one end to the other.”
— Tracy Gibbs, Recruitment and Staffing Coordinator
