Absence Management

Absence Management is the district's substitute management system. Teachers will use it to request a substitute when they are absent. The service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You may interact with the system either on the Internet at www.aesopeducation.com, or by way of a toll-free automated phone line.

To begin using the system you must first follow these steps to register:

  1. Obtain your ID and Pin numbers from the central office (512-398-0041)
  2. Dial 1­-800-­942-­3767 (1­800­94­AESOP)
  3. Enter your ID and Pin numbers
  4. Once you are logged into the system, you will be given prompts for the various menu choices
  5. When you access the system over the phone for the first time, it is very important that you record your name and assignment for substitutes to hear. Please keep in mind that only your name and assignment should be recorded, (e.g. John Doe, 3rd Grade) as the system will play this recording to potential substitutes for all future absences you register. You will not be asked to record this information each time you register an absence.

Important: When entering an absence, please wait until you receive a confirmation number before you terminate the phone call. Your transaction is not complete until you receive a confirmation number.

You may also access the system on the Internet at www.aesopeducation.com. Here you will be able to enter absences, check your Absence schedule, update personal information, and exercise other features. If you have any questions, concerns, or comments; please feel free to contact the central office at 512-398-­0041 or at support@aesoponline.com.
