About SubSolutions

Since 1995, the annual SubSolutions conferences have been valuable for hundreds of administrators and managers to learn how to handle the difficult challenges schools and staffing agencies face in managing substitute teaching.

It’s just not the individual substitute teachers, it’s teacher absenteeism, the automated phone systems, the Affordable Care Act, the practices, policies and procedures of the school district, it’s the economy – well, you get the picture.

The session presentations come from school districts and organizations who are working with these challenges each and every day as well as the latest research conducted by STEDI.org.

For two and a half days, we focus on your challenges and how to solve them in a very intimate environment, and this year, in a very beautiful setting.

It’s a win-win situation in Park City, so register today, and bring your boss to SubSolutions!


  • Best practices in the management of substitute teaching
  • How other districts handle the same issues you are facing
  • How to do more with fewer people
  • Reduce complaints and increase effectiveness of subs
  • Increase fill rates even on the worst days
  • Automate the hiring process for substitute teachers
  • Find, recruit, and encourage the best to become subs

  • Certified, bachelor, 60-hour, high school – What should the qualifications of substitute teachers be?
