Substitute Help Guide


Getting Started

Using Aesop Successfully

Note: This guide covers most of the functions that are available to substitutes in Aesop.  These functions are permission based.  If you see something in this guide that you are not able to do, your district may not have given you permission to access this function.


Proactively fill your schedule

Aesop offers you the flexibility to proactively search for jobs and fill your own schedule the way you want. To help you benefit most from automated substitute placement, Aesop offers you both phone and web services for finding and accepting jobs. Substitutes can call in to Aesop toll-free at 1-800-942-3767 or log in online at .


Manage your preferences

With Aesop, not only can you plan your schedule ahead of time, but you can also choose Non-Work Days, specify preferred schools and adjust call times to fit your schedule. You can also view work history and receive phone and e-mail notifications of available jobs.


Find out about available jobs

Aesop notifies substitutes of available jobs they qualify for. Most employee absences are entered the day before the absence occurs, but they can enter their absences very far in advance.  Depending on the district’s settings, substitutes can discover available jobs days, weeks, or even months in advance.


Aesop can alert substitutes to new jobs through both phone and e-mail services. Substitutes can then choose to accept or reject the assignment.
