Wow, where I sub there is such a demand for subs that there can literally be about 20-25 jobs available the night before, whenever I log in. Maybe you should consider signing up for more school...

Yeah, no matter what company you work for, taxes can be tricky. I dont bother doing them by hand anymore. Always use a reliable program like Turbo Tax or H&R Block. I noticed one of my school...

Personally I have been subbing in this district for about 9 years and everyone knows me already. Therefore, a merge with Swing would not suddenly make me a stranger. But you are right, if you join...

It sounds to me that they may have a requirement that you have to work a certain number of days per week (or per month), that you were not meeting before. Meanwhile, turn off the calling feature on...

I really hope they dont switch to this. However, as a sub in NJ, we dont have any of these benefits as it is. So there is no real loss, except having to pay all the taxes at the end of the year vs...

Oh ok. Doesn't sound too bad, however I would not look forward to getting fingerprinting and the TB all over again. I did that years ago and my districts never required us to get it done again.

What Is The Process Like When Your District Switches To An Outsource company?

Wow! Here in NJ we do not get any benefits from subbing. However, both of my districts did give us nice raises this year, so I just hope that IF they go with Swing, the rates wont drop.

However,...

If the deadline has passed, and your district(s) are still allowing you to sub, I would not stress it. I get the feeling you are putting more pressure on yourself to complete these online courses...

The crazy thing is my district states the opposite in their letter. Their letter says there is no guarantee your services will be needed the following school year. I think that would help people...

It would be nice if you all mentioned the State where you work. I think sub pay varies a lot by state. I believe CA and NY pay the highest ($150-$200/day) and more rural areas get paid the least...
