eSchool Solution’s Substitute Employee Management System provides automated substitute placement for absent teachers.
Via the on-line SmartFindExpress or by use of a touch-tone phone, teachers report absences 24 hours a day, toll free, up to a year in advance, and the system calls qualified substitutes for possible placement, starting 30 days before the absence.
Substitutes can login to SmartFindExpress to view/accept open assignments. Teachers can request their ‘favorite’ substitute, and the system will give that person priority before moving down the list of qualifications by job responsibilities, site, and corporation.
