ESS is pleased to announce the newest additions to our family of school districts – the Everman Independent School District in Tarrant County, Texas, and the Celina Independent School District in Collin County, Texas.

This past Saturday, one of our hardworking substitutes, Ruth Reed, was waiting in line at her local Wawa in Medford, NJ when she offered to help pay for a man’s order when he didn’t have enough cash. Ruth was surprised to learn that this man was famous country singer, Keith Urban! She has made it her mission to pay for at least one customer’s order per week, and this week her good nature led her into a chance meeting with the famous musician and a photograph to prove it.
We're excited to announce that we've partnered with our third school district in the state of Texas – the Royse City Independent School District!

ESS’ recent partnership with Gallup-McKinley County Schools in New Mexico has been a tremendous success!

We are proud to offer such an effective solution to Gallup-McKinley County Schools and we look forward to a long and prosperous partnership.

Congratulations to Stephen Troyanovich for winning ESS’ Regional Employee of the Year award! Since January 2017, Steve has been working hard as a support paraprofessional at Northern Burlington County Regional High School in New Jersey. He goes above and beyond every day to help the school district by filling in last-minute to work in any classroom with any student, traveling outside of the district to work with one of their out-of-district students, and working the Extended School Year program over the summer. He even had perfect attendance for the 2016/2017 school year!
