Fill Rate Academy –, Substitute Teaching Division Skip to main content is eager to announce a new academy for managers of substitute teachers. Whether you are new to your management position or have been there for a long time, STEDI wants to help you in each of those aspects all for the main goal of increasing your fill-rate.

This academy will bombard you with the best practices, best ideas, best strategies, and best methods to implement a successful substitute teaching program. These proven ideas and strategies come from those on the front lines of improving fill rates each and every day and have seen results.

Just as importantly, you’ll learn those strategies that you shouldn’t implement, strategies that would cost too much time and effort, with very few results. By knowing these, you’ll be working smarter not harder. And you’ll pay for the course in a very short order.

Be part of the very first group to complete this ten-week course, and you’ll receive a 50% discount on your registration. This is only good for Cohort 1 – October 2 – December 11, 2017. There will be live event, but most of the course work you can complete at your own time. You will also have all the material for as long as you would like for review and clarification.

Now the best part!

There will just as much interaction between the participants as there are between the instructors that you’ll be able to gain confidence to implement strategies the very first week of the course.

It’ll be the best investment your district can make in increasing your fill rate.

You’ll have so much confidence you’ll be so excited to go to work each and every day.
