Kelly Educational Staffing® and the Florida Association of School Administrators Announce Partnership to Benefit Retired Educators
TALLAHASSEE, Fla., June 28, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kelly Educational Staffing (KES®) and The Florida Association of School Administrators (FASA) today announced a joint partnership designed to benefit retired educators. The partnership connects retiring administrators and teachers to job opportunities with KES client-schools, allowing them to remain active in the educational community.
Since 1997, KES has been providing employment to education professionals through thousands of client-school partnerships across the U.S. In Florida, KES employs over 10,000 substitute teachers, including retirees, while offering access to continued training, personal development courses and health benefits. Working through KES allows retired administrators and teachers to return to schools immediately without affecting retirement benefits.
“Providing administrators the opportunity to return to work after retirement ensures institutional knowledge and high performing educators continue to provide the best education in Florida," said Juhan Mixon, Ed.D., executive director of FASA. “We are excited for the partnership with Kelly Educational Staffing and for our members.”
In light of the current teacher shortage, the partnership is a win-win situation for both schools and retired educators alike. KES not only serves as an excellent resource for employment that is rewarding, flexible, and fits the “retired” lifestyle, but it also provides a solution to school districts struggling to fill administrator positions that play a vital role in student achievement.
“As part of our commitment to education in Florida, we are excited about our partnership with FASA and the ability to bring retirees back into school districts to fill much needed roles,” said Debbie Pearson, vice president, Strategic Sales, KES. “Through the partnership, retirees can remain active in the educational community without a waiting period and continue to have a positive impact on school district performance.”
