Substitute Placement System (AESOP)
The new substitute placement system has been operating for the past two weeks. School administration are generally pleased although there have been the expected difficulties that come with learning a new system. Michelle Gouthro has been fielding calls from substitutes and administration and has done a terrific job as we move forward. In addition, Jim MacNeil has been working on some of the technical issues related to the system and has clarified numerous issues for us.
We will be meeting with school administration at their November meeting and should be in a position to receive additional feedback from them at that time.
