Districts to choose automation with Aesop within the last year include Juneau Borough School District in Alaska, Sumner County Schools in Tennessee and Milwaukee Public Schools in Wisconsin.
To continue to make Aesop simple and easy-to-use, Frontline Technologies has begun a long-term initiative to rebuild the Aesop platform, beginning with the substitute teacher portal. The new look is specially designed with substitutes' needs in mind, making it as simple as possible for them to find available jobs, view their schedules, create non-work days, and perform other important tasks.
In July, Portland Public Schools, the largest school district in Oregon, switched to Aesop from the SmartFindExpress® sub-calling system from eSchool Solutions®. The upgrade from eSchool's SEMS product to SmartFindExpress resulted in technical issues for Portland, leading the district to search for a more efficient solution. Portland will now benefit from Aesop's Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform, with no hardware, software or phone lines to install or maintain at the district.
Aesop Administrators, Organization (central office) Users, and Campus Users (school principals and secretaries) can access key functions of Aesop from the convenience of any device that can access the internet, including smartphones, iPads and more.
The district previously used a sub-calling box provided by eSchool Solutions, but decided to transfer their more than 1,500 employees to Aesop, the leading Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) provider of substitute placement and absence management solutions.
VeriTime is a web-based time and attendance system built specifically for the complex needs of K-12. Together with Aesop, VeriTime offers a complete attendance management solution: Aesop tracks time absent, while VeriTime tracks actual time worked.
PGCPS, the 18th largest district in the US and second largest in Maryland, was previously using a phone-only system from eSchool Solutions to schedule replacements for their more than 20,000 full-time employees.
Knox County Schools employs nearly 8,000 teachers, support staff, and other personnel throughout the district. Previously, the absence management processes for Knox County Schools were decentralized, with each of the 87 schools handling its own substitute placement manually.
With one building in Moscow and another in St. Petersburg, the AAS was looking for a more efficient method for substitute placement and absence management. The director, Erica Fursova, discovered Aesop at the AASPA Conference in the US. Many reports about Aesop's superior functionality and world class customer service from other attendees led Fursova to see if Aesop could serve her organization.
