Please note, Aesop does NOT send out phone notifications when jobs become available. You will have to be proactive in searching for jobs just like with the old system or watching for emails regarding upcoming jobs that may be available. If you would like phone notifications, you will have to purchase the 'Jobulator' app mentioned above.

1. You can search for and accept available jobs, change personal settings, update your calendar, and personalize your available call times by visiting Aesop on the internet at If the employee has uploaded lesson plans on the Internet, you will be able to view them online once you take the job!

2. You may interact with the Aesop system by way of a toll-free, automated voice instruction menu at 1-800-942-3767. Here, you can proactively search for jobs and manage existing jobs. We recommend calling in to check the computer recording of your name by pressing Option 4.

3. Aesop will also make phone calls to substitutes to offer jobs. The administrative office has selected the following hours as standard call times when the Aesop service may call for substitutes: 5:30:00 AM - 12:45:00 PM in the morning and 4:00:00 PM - 9:30:00 PM in the evening.

MISC Items:
  • When school is closed due to inclement weather, notifications will be provided to local media or you can see these notifications on the front of our website:
  • ID Badges will be given upon check in. Please return these at the end of the day. If you do anything long term, you will be issued an actual id badge with your photo.
  • GPS will be limiting sub days to 140 days per year. We will keep track of your sub days worked.
  • If you work fewer than 8 days per year for Gretna Public Schools, your name will automatically be removed from our substitute list for the following school year.
  • Please notify Sarah Roarty ([email protected]) if your address or contact information has changed. We will also need this information for sending out W-2s at the end of the fiscal year.
