Automated Educational Substitute operator (AESOP)

Union Public Schools uses AESOP, an automated substitute caller system, that combines computerized telephoning with the functions of the Internet to register absences, identify qualified replacements, and report to administrators. AESOP allows Union to manage the entire substitution process via software and the Internet.

How Do Substitutes Benefit?

The system provides multiple-medium absence acceptance. Substitutes are called and may accept jobs online. They can make AESOP their own personal calling system by going online and updating their calendar and available call times. Substitutes can be proactive by accepting jobs in advance, thus eliminating morning panic.

How Do Teachers Benefit?

  • 24 hour, 7 days/week absence notification
  • Online absence history
  • Advance absence notification online
  • Ability to check substitute history for each absence

Call 1-800-94-AESOP or click AESOP.

Teachers can also access their calendars, making their call-out history visible with the substitute's name listed as well.
