Aesop is an Automated Substitute Placement and Absence Management system. Aesop is used to request a reserve teacher (substitute) when a MPS teacher is absent. It also is used to perform other functions that are needed by the District. These functions include, but are not limited to: “System of Record” for tracking teacher attendance; teacher attendance reporting; captures hours to pay reserve teachers; and captures hours teachers are absent.

The Aesop system is supported and managed by the Reserve Desk which is part of the Talent Acquisition department in Human Resources. If you have any questions or need any assistance when recording an absence, contact your Aesop administrator or secretary at your site or contact the Reserve Desk via email at The Reserve Desk office hours are 6:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
