Kelly Educational Staffing


Since 1997, Kelly Educational Staffing® (a specialty service of Kelly Services®) has been providing workforce solutions to meet the challenges of thousands of schools across the United States. In fact, Kelly Educational Staffing is the largest employer of substitute teachers nationwide.

In 2009 alone, 20,000 classrooms per week were filled by a Kelly Educational Staffing employee. We're known for providing qualified substitute teachers as well as solutions that help school districts and job seekers alike.

It all began when William R. Kelly—founder of the temporary staffing industry—established Kelly Services® in 1946. The company's traditional expertise started with office services, call center, light industrial, and electronic assembly staffing. Through the years, we expanded our expertise and established a proven record of successfully matching job seekers to opportunities in disciplines such as science, engineering, law, education, healthcare, IT, and finance. As a Fortune 500® company, Kelly® has evolved into a global workforce solutions leader, making employment connections for nearly half a million people around the world every year.

Since our founding, we have embodied the true spirit of social responsibility. Our character and values resonate through our culture. Inherently—through our core business focus—we seek to improve the quality of life for our employees, their families, and their communities, as well as society at large. We embrace the role we play and the value we contribute to society—whether ensuring equal opportunity to employment, promoting safer workplace conditions, advocating for healthcare reform, or adhering to sustainable business practices.

Together with our employees and our customers, we will continue to work toward ensuring that our legacy will remain strong for generations to come. For more than 60 years, people have trusted Kelly Services to help them reach their career goals. We are your proven link to employment opportunities that will pave the way for a successful future. Whoever and wherever you are—and with the right skills and attitude—Kelly can help you find a job, expand your career, and build your future.

Kelly Educational Staffing® is the first and only nationwide service line dedicated solely to providing schools across the country with a quality substitute teacher staffing solution. The Kelly Educational Staffing program was designed to relieve school districts of the administrative burden involved with filling open classrooms, managing payroll and administering a substitute teacher workforce.

The program provides substitute teachers for virtually any teaching situation in grades K-12. We currently service more than 2,900 public and private schools in 45 states, the District of Columbia, and the United Kingdom. Additionally, more than 20,000 substitute teachers were assigned to our school partners during the 2006/2007 school year. And we’re growing every day!
