The Ventura County Office of Education utilizes Aesop, an automated system for reporting absences and obtaining substitutes. It allows teachers and paraeducators to report an absence in two different ways.

Option #1

You can interact with Aesop on the internet at  Here, you will be able to enter absences, check your absence schedule, update personal information, and exercise other features such as uploading your lesson plans for substitutes to view online.

Option #2

You can also call Aesop toll free at 1-800-942-3767.  Simply follow the voice menu to enter and manage absences and access other features.  We recommend that you call in to check the computer recording of your name and title.  To do this, press Option 5 and follow the prompts.

Below is a link to the Quick Start Guide that will show you the basics of getting started with Aesop.
