We believe in leveraging the power of design to fuel best practices around substitute teaching and deliver quality learning for students every day. Substantial was founded in 2016 and since then we have been coordinating a range of services including district consulting, PD for HR teams, and the development of a substitute data dashboard. In 2018, we launched our first stand alone technology product, SubPlans. SubPlans is a tool to streamline sub plan submission and distribution, saving time, improving sub fill-rates, and creating a better experience for everyone involved.
