"...for the past decade we have allowed assessment and accountability to consume our focus and [...] we are programmed to go there first when decisions impacting public education are considered. The new reality is we are moving away from that model to one with a focus on teaching and learning...." --Dr. Thomas R. Bice, State Superintendent of Education
Blount County Schools has partnered with Kelly Educational Staffing (KES) for all of our substitute teacher, paraprofessional, clerical, tutor, CNP, janitorial, and nurse needs beginning with the 2013-2014 school year. KES will handle all the aspects of our substitute program including hiring, training, and scheduling. There are several advantages to this partnership such as the opportunity for substitutes to have year-round employment and additional incentives exclusive to employment with KES. KES will retain any of our current substitutes that wish to continue to substitute in Blount County Schools and recruit other qualified persons to expand the pool.
If you are interested in applying for any substitute positions, please contact the KES office at
