ESS was founded 22 years ago with the vision of providing administrative relief to school districts and professional working opportunities to qualified educators. Beginning in 2000 with just 17 partner districts and 150 substitute employees, the ESS program quickly became the premier solution for school districts and substitutes nationwide. We are now partnered with more than 900+ districts in 33 states, serving 4,500,000 students daily and filling 40 different types of substitute and permanent positions in 18,500 assignments each day.
