Star Subs

As a Swing Substitute, you have the chance to become a star! Check out the details below to see how you can earn and maintain the highest status of Star Sub, and learn about the many benefits that Star Subs receive!


How are Swing Substitutes Classified?

  • Star Sub: You are among our most reliable and most frequently requested substitutes at Swing!
  • Rising Star: All substitutes start out here. You may have a few last-minute cancellations or no-shows recently, but you’re on your way to becoming a star sub!
  • Falling Star: You may have had a no-show, late-arrival, too many last-minute cancellations, or negative feedback from schools. You can improve your standing by making it on time to all your requests and getting positive feedback!

How can I see my status?

Go to your sub-profile page by logging into Swing and clicking on your picture in the top right.

Your status will be listed in your private stats. Schools continue to only see if you are a Star Sub.

How to become a Star Sub:

  • Get positive feedback! Schools have the option to leave feedback, so do good work, get a positive review, and avoid negative feedback.
  • Don’t no show! No-shows strain school resources and negatively affect your status.
  • Don’t cancel at the last minute! Make sure you’re mindful of what you sign up for, and don’t cancel 24 hours before the assignment starts.
  • Get preferred! Create great relationships with schools so they request you as a preferred sub
  • Pick up lots of assignments! The more you work, the better your stats will be.

Benefits of being a Star Sub:

Swing Education gives extra benefits to our most reliable substitutes such as:

  • Ability to see requests further in advance!
  • A “Star Sub” icon visible to schools on your substitute profile
  • Priority for filling long-term requests
  • Priority for assignments with new school partners
  • More flexibility in your work schedule
  • Access to higher-paying opportunities like the “Swing Heroes” program

    It is not possible to get from Palo Alto to San Jose at 7:30 when I receive a request after 7. Bay Area 101 traffic is crazy at that hour. Also I was subbing in a french and Spanish class one day and I don’t know either of the two languages.

    I really enjoy my Assignments.
    Always early, and looks like I just got my 1st Star Assignment.

    I much prefer Swing to any other subbing I've done.
    Yeah Swing!
