Education Solutions Services (ESS), based in Knoxville, TN, was established by experienced leaders in the education field to address the need for qualified teachers, substitute teachers and administrative support staff. In July of 2017, ESS merged with Source4Teachers, a New Jersey-based company with more than 17 years of experience in staffing substitute teachers and paraprofessionals in the K-12 market. This integration was reinforced in August of 2017 through the strategic acquisitions of two additional companies.
EMS Subdesk is a Beaverton, Oregon-based company providing substitute and other related labor services to the K-12 market in Oregon. SubTeach USA, a Paragould, Arkansas-based company, serves K-12 school districts, charter schools and early education centers in Arkansas, Missouri, Mississippi and Texas.
For the near term, EMS SubDesk and SubTeach USA will be operating under their individual company names in their respective markets. Over time, all companies will migrate to the ESS name which will be used on a national basis.
The team collectively serves 421 districts, 2,410 schools and employs more than 40,000 substitute teachers and paraprofessionals across 15 states, serving more than 1,200,000 students each day.
