Teacher - How to use the new AESOP (Automated Sub Calling System)

We are excited to announce that for the 2013-2014 year KGBSD will be using an automated sub-calling system, offered on both the phone and internet. Teachers will be able to register absences at any time, either by calling a toll-free number or by logging on to Aesop online. Aesop immediately starts to look for an available substitute that matches the specified qualifications and preferences.

This training is not mandatory, and we will be working with schools to educated all about the new system.

These drop in are for those that would like to get a more in-depth look at the new system, have time to ask questions, and get comfortable before we start this new program.
