Explain It Like I’m 9: The Substitute Shortage


When teachers need to be out of the classroom, a qualified substitute is key to making sure kids continue learning, uninterrupted. Your fill rate will tell you how many vacancies you have, but it won’t tell you why! Here’s a look at what the data tells us about the nationwide substitute shortage.

A few highlights from the Frontline Research & Learning Institute:

• On any given month or school year, half of all substitutes aren’t taking jobs

• On average, substitutes only work abut 4 days a month

• Nationally, only 80% of teacher absences are covered by a qualified substitute

How can you get your substitutes to take jobs more often? One great way to find out: ask them.
