Genesee County ISD outsources substitutes

GENESEE COUNTY — The Genesee County Intermediate School District contracted out its substitute teacher services with the Professional Education Services Group. Savings are expected to be passed on to individual districts. For instance, it is expected to save the Davison Community Schools between $40,000 and $50,000 annually, according to The Flint Journal.

"It saves school districts money, and it actually puts a little more money in the pockets of substitute teachers because they don’t have to pay their contribution towards the retirement system," Davison Superintendent Clay Perkins told The Journal.
