The first step to log on to Aesop is to visit the Aesop website. Put www.FrontlineK12.com/Aesop into your internet browser's address bar and hit the Enter button on your keyboard.
This will take you to the Aesop website. At the top right corner of this page you will see the area to login. Use the ID and PIN was provided to you by your district in your welcome letter. Once you have entered this info into the boxes click the Login button.
You can click the "Forgot your login" which will open a new page. On this page you can have a PIN reminder sent to your email address.
There are many things you can do and see on your Aesop website, but as an employee one of the most important things is the ability to create an absence. We have made it easy for you to do this right from your Home Page.
To start the absence creation process scroll down to the Create Absence tab on the Home Page.
Most absence scenarios can be created right here from the home page.
When selecting your absence date simply click on the single day and it will be highlighted in blue.
You can also click on multiple days to create a multi-day absence. The days do not have to be consecutive.
The next step is to fill in some details.
Substitute Required - This option may already be predetermined for you but you may have the option to choose if a sub is required or not. To change the option from "Yes" to "No" just click to move the slider.
Absence Reason - Choose your absence reason from the dropdown list.
Time - Choose what type of absence this is. Is it a Full Day Absence? Is it a Half Day Absence? Depending on your district's setup you may have the option to choose a custom absence as well.
If you do need to enter custom times, choose "Custom" from the dropdown and then enter the custom times in the boxes provided.
There are a couple of optional things you can do as well before saving the absence.
Notes - You have the ability to leave notes for your administrator and for the sub who will be filling in for you. The notes you leave for the administrator will not be visible by the sub. The notes you leave for the sub will be visible to the administrator.
Attach a File - Aesop gives you the ability to attach files to your absence for your substitute to see. You can attach Word, Exel, and PDF files.
To attach a file click the Choose File button and browse your computer for the file you want to attach. If you are using a web browser like Chrome or Safari you may also be able to just drag the file right into the drop area you see in the picture above.
Once you have added a file you will see the name of the file in the File Attachments area. To delete the file use the trash can icon.
Once you have filled in all the required fields click the Create Absence button at the bottom right corner.
Once the absence is saved you will see a message at the top of your screen which will include the confirmation number. The absence will also show up under the Scheduled Absences tab.
