ESI began in 1999 as a modest, one-district operation in Arizona. Since then, we've grown to become the trusted employee leasing solution for school districts, cities and colleges, while remaining a privately owned company. Our teachers enjoy working with a team who understands how demanding their profession is, and who stands behind them providing professional training and benefits to eligible employees. Employers consistently turn to us for our top talent.
Arizona students and educators benefit from the combined companies
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz – March 9, 2020 – Educational Services, Inc. (ESI), announced the acquisition of smartSchoolsPlus for an undisclosed price. Both are Arizona-based companies providing employee staffing solutions for school districts through substitute outsourcing as well as return-to-work programs for retirees. The consolidated experience of these two industry leaders creates an even more effective resource to help address the personnel challenges facing schools.
PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -- You've heard about the Arizona teacher shortage, but what about our substitute teachers?
Well, guess what? Arizona needs more of those too.
Here in Arizona, school districts spend most mornings troubleshooting, just trying to cover those classes where teachers have called out. It’s a daily occurrence and just one more challenge associated with the state of our schools.
