Knox County Schools Joins the Aesop Family
EXTON, Pa. - June 3, 2010 - Aesop is pleased to announce that Knox County Schools, located in Knoxville, Tennessee, will join the nearly 2,500 districts using Aesop for automated substitute placement and absence management.
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.
By choosing Aesop, Knox County Schools will benefit from automated web and phone-based substitute placement, eliminating time-consuming manual substitute-calling. The district will also benefit from centralized information across all buildings and will be able to easily report on data such as fill rates, absenteeism patterns, absence reasons, and more.
Additionally, an interface between Aesop and the district's payroll system will reduce data entry time and mistakes in payroll.
