Requesting a Long Term sub

What is a long term request?

A long term request is a request longer than than 21 calendar days.  Long term requests are different from normal request in a few ways:

  1. 1. Long term requests allow you to select the sub who is the best fit from a waitlist which interested subs can sign up for.
  2. 2. All long term requests are also automatically submitted for reviewed by our team prior to being released to the sub-pool and in turn, are not instantaneously posted to the platform. This process can take up to 24 hours. 

How do I submit a long term request? 

The Swing platform automatically recognizes requests that are longer than 21 calendar days, which makes issuing long term requests easy. The main difference is, you will type out the scheduled dates and time for the request rather than selecting them. * Please included any days the school will be closed or holidays that will be observed in the text box to ensure correct payment to the sub, and invoicing to the school.


How will I know when my request is no longer under review?

Your request will be released to the sub pool within 24 hours of its submission.  Once it has been released, it will no longer say "Pending Swing Review" on the request page.


Please note, our long term coordinator will be reaching out to help assist in filling your request or feel free to reach out to support here with any questions or concerns.
