School districts around Michigan are trying to fill substitute teaching spots after the company that supplied staffers suddenly closed their doors.

Professional Education Services Group closed their offices in Burton and Caledonia suddenly this week. PESG put out a letter to employees on Tuesday informing them of the sudden closure.

We regret to inform you that Professional Educational Services Group, LLC is stopping all operations in Michigan effective immediately. This means that your employment—and the employment of all Professional Educational Services Group employees in Michigan—is terminated on October 22, 2018.

Michigan is already in the middle of a teacher and substitute shortage, so the sudden loss of hundreds of substitutes will be especially devastating.

The letter from PESG said that around 1,500 subs would be affected statewide by the sudden closure.

No Genesee County schools have publicly commented about the substitute shortage yet, but it has to be an issue considering one of the PESG offices that closed is in Burton.
