    Aesop is a computerized substitute calling system that can be accessed by substitutes by telephone or online. It’s easy to use and provides substitutes with the ability to job shop, view information about jobs they have accepted, and review jobs that they have already filled. Once substitutes have been reappointed or newly appointed by the Board of Education, they will receive the necessary information to access Aesop.
