MHED Staffing Solutions
MHED is proud to offer the following solutions for your staffing needs:
We recruit through various methods — Internet, newspaper ads, referrals, fliers, campus recruiting, etc.
We adhere to the same standards as the Missouri and Kansas Departments of Education, but go one step further by interviewing all applicants in person, as well as conduct an additional background screening and two previous employment checks.
Orientation & Professional Development
All new employees will go through orientation which includes information about MHED processes and procedures, expectations, school policies, and payroll processes. We also provide MHED Substitutes with ongoing professional development each year. We are committed to providing our substitute teachers with the most current professional development programs to ensure that our districts receive only the most qualified substitute teachers.
We use the Absence Management automated scheduling system. Our system allows your teachers to report absences and request substitute teachers via the phone, email, or our website. We have dedicated phone lines exclusively for your teachers and MHED substitutes. The phone is answered by our staff during the hours of 6:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. Monday – Friday. Outside of those hours, the call is forwarded to a 24-hour voice mail that is checked regularly outside of office hours.
We handle the entire administrative side of substitute staffing: Payroll processing, including weekly payroll, federal and state payroll taxes, unemployment insurance, workers’ compensation, background checks, certification status, health insurance, 401 (k) plans, etc.
Management & Quality Control
All substitutes receive performance-based evaluations. We welcome all feedback, positive or negative. We will track and analyze the feedback to help us manage and meet the needs of our districts. We also provide a referral rewards program, substitute teacher of the semester and year awards, and substitute appreciation events.
