How to Post Remote and In-person Requests in Texas

As more schools have adopted distance learning and other types of learning arrangements, Swing Education has enhanced the Swing platform to allow school admins to include more details on the request. This allows teachers to determine which requests are the best fit for them. Below we will outline how to issue these requests types. 

 

In-person Requests

With in-person requests, both students and the teacher are physically present on campus, in the classroom.

  • Whole Group in-person requests
    Both the substitute teacher and the entire classroom are on campus, together, in the same classroom.

      • Directions for posting a small group in-person request:
        1. Under Classroom Arrangement, Select Sub on Campus for the "Sub Location" and Students On Campus for the "Student Location"Screen_Shot_2020-10-27_at_11.38.48_PM.pngScreen_Shot_2020-10-27_at_11.38.59_PM.png


        2. Complete the form by filling out "grade level", "subject matter" and any additional notes you wish to share. Once you click "Request Sub" you will see your open request.

 

Hybrid Requests

Hybrid requests involve a mix between in-person and remote teaching. For example, during a long-term assignment, some days may be remote and others may be on campus. Or, in other cases, the teacher may be on campus and the students could be at home.  

  • Substitute Teacher On-Campus, Students Remote
