Absence Management – formerly Aesop
Absence Management is an online system designed to match teacher and teaching assistant openings with appropriate substitutes. Teachers and teaching assistants simply input absences into the system and available substitutes log in to find openings on any given day. Among its features is the option to attach lesson plans or other documents directly to the absence listing, providing the substitute with as much classroom planning as possible. The Absence Management mobile app makes the entire process convenient to use from any location.
The district believes that creating this online schedule of openings, as most Orange County districts already have, improves the pool of available substitutes by allowing them to plan when and where they will work.
