Aesop offers services to school education systems for managing employee leave and scheduling substitute teachers and other educational staff when necessary. Aesop provides an online and telephone-based interface for teachers to report absences. An automated system notifies available substitutes of the absence until it is filled. The school has real-time access to information about absences and substitutes, and Aesop provides customized reports with this information when requested.
Aesop provides services that integrate data about absences and substitutes with payroll systems, human resources, professional development and applicant tracking to automate many tasks typically done by a school's office staff. It organizes many of the tasks related to employee leave, including reasons for absences, to promote fewer discretionary days off. It also handles many of the tasks related to hiring, placing and paying substitute teachers and professional staff, including working with outside organizations to complete these tasks. Automation through Aesop reduces human error and helps ensure every classroom has a qualified teacher each day.
Aesop reduces the amount of paperwork necessary to track absences and substitutes. An online interface replaces absence forms, approval forms and substitute sign-in sheets. School secretaries, administrators and principals access this information from their computers or mobile devices for immediate information about that state of their school staffing. Reports are available in standard formats for access by the programs schools already use.
