Partnership to address the challenges School Districts face in hiring and retaining Substitute Teachers

Stamford CT and Exton PA (July 26, 2023) – Rellevate Inc. and Red Rover are proud to announce a collaborative partnership aimed at providing innovative solutions to help School Districts tackle the ongoing challenges of hiring and retaining substitute teachers.
Rellevate, a leading digital fintech company, specializes in cutting-edge payment products such as the Rellevate Digital Account, PayCards, and Pay Any-Day (Earned Wage Access) for employees, flex workers, and consultants.
Red Rover, with over 900 school districts and 95,000 substitute teachers in its arsenal, is the fastest-growing HR solution for K12 absence management and substitute placement, enabling School Districts to efficiently schedule substitute teachers.
“We recognize the difficulties that School Districts face in efficiently recruiting and retaining substitute teachers, as well as permanent staff. That’s why we are thrilled to partner with Red Rover and offer School Districts a Rellevate Account featuring the Pay Any-Day product. This empowers qualified substitute teachers and other school district employees by providing them with access to their earned wages before payday. This crucial employee benefit aids in recruitment and retention,” commented Stewart A. Stockdale, Rellevate Co-Founder, Chairman, and CEO.
According to a May 2022 survey by the U.S. Department of Education, over 1 in 5, U.S. schools reported an increase in teacher absenteeism since the pandemic. Teacher absences have increased compared to prior school year with more than three-quarters of public schools reported it is more difficult to get substitutes than it was before the pandemic and nearly three-quarters of public schools are frequently relying on administrators, non-teaching staff, and teachers on their free periods to cover classes.”
“At Red Rover, we understand that teacher absenteeism is not a new phenomenon, but it has become more pronounced since the pandemic. Our software solution empowers School Districts to streamline their operations by effectively managing substitute teachers’ schedules, hiring, and pay. Our partnership with Rellevate and the inclusion of their products and services have further positioned us as leaders in the industry. We are committed to listening to the needs of our clients and surpassing market expectations,” stated Daniel M. O’Shaughnessey, Red Rover Co-Founder and CEO.
