IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING SUBSTITUTE TEACHERS AND INSTRUCTIONAL AIDES WORKING FOR THE SANTA CRUZ COUNTY OFFICE OF EDUCATION PROGRAMS ONLY
(Payroll processes for all other school districts are unchanged)
Substitute teachers and instructional aides are no longer required to complete a paper timesheet in order to be paid when working for Santa Cruz COE programs (Special Education, Alternative Education and CTEP). Pay will be generated from reports from the Frontline Absence Management (AESOP) automated sub system.
THE PAY PROCESSES FOR ALL OTHER SCHOOL DISTRICTS WILL REMAIN THE SAME, THIS CHANGE IS ONLY FOR THE Santa Cruz COE PROGRAMS.
- Substitutes will not be paid if the job is not in the AESOP system with a confirming job number.
- If you make a verbal arrangement to sub for a teacher or instructional aide the job must be entered in the system or you will not be paid. You must obtain the confirmation number prior to the date of the absence. This cannot be done retroactively. An absence must be in the system before 7:00a.m. on the date of the absence.
- As a substitute it is your responsibility not to work without a valid confirmation number. Thank you for your cooperation in our effort to be more efficient and green.
