Swing Education Launches Bonus Plan to Support & Incentivize Substitute Teachers

To further support substitute teachers and recognize their dedication to the students and schools they serve, Swing Education has launched its Annual Bonus Plan for the 2021-2022 school year. The company, which offers an app connecting schools to substitute teachers, will provide substitute teachers in its network with an annual bonus of up to $1,000 based on the number of days they work this coming year.

“Substitute teachers are critical to the success and daily operations of schools, yet oftentimes don’t receive the recognition or compensation they deserve,” said Mike Teng, CEO of Swing Education. “As an organization, we are committed to the success of our substitute teachers and the new bonus plan will help support, motivate, and reward them this coming school year.”

With the bonus plan, which concludes on June 10, 2022, substitute teachers in Swing Education’s network will be eligible for tiered daily bonuses after working 50 days. The bonuses increase at 100 days and again at 150 days during the 2021-2022 school year. The daily bonuses will be paid as a lump sum at the end of the school year on or before June 30, 2022.

“I appreciate the focus on incentivizing employees,” said substitute teacher Cynthia Illescas. “As someone who works for multiple agencies, it has been easier to choose one over others.”

Utilizing its extensive network of qualified substitute teachers, Swing Education helps K-12 schools and districts address staff shortages. It comprehensively recruits, screens, and qualifies substitute teachers, then efficiently matches them with schools through Swing Education’s online marketplace. Today, Swing Education currently serves schools and districts in Arizona, California, Illinois, New Jersey, New York, Texas, and Washington, D.C.
