Kelly Educational Staffing Substitute Teacher Benefits

Why KES?

At Kelly Educational Staffing, we know that to retain our top employees, we must respect them as individuals, provide career guidance, build a sense of community, and recognize their value. We understand that the quality of the substitute educator directly contributes to student success.

KES is the only substitute staffing provider with proven and extensive experience servicing large, urban districts. Because of our unmatched experience and success, we understand the unique challenges that the School District of Philadelphia and its substitute teachers face every day. 

Since 1997, more than a quarter of a billion student learning days have been taught by a KES substitute teacher. We are an Employer of Choice, and have filled more than 2.2 million classrooms per year with passionate, qualified substitute teachers and assistants who strive to improve the learning environments of their students.

Like the School District of Philadelphia, our goal is to promote student achievement. One way we do this is by never limiting or capping the hours of our substitute teachers and assistants. We support our educators, and allow them to work as much as possible in order to maintain the continuity of classroom learning. Not every staffing provider has this high standard. As a trusted partner to thousands of school districts nationwide, our sole focus is to place qualified instructional and non-instructional employees in Philadelphia schools so the faculty and the students can focus on education.
