Aesop Launched in CCSD21
Aesop "went live" in District 21 on Wednesday, November 9, 2011. Calls for substitute assignments are no longer made by the CCSD21 Sub Caller.
Current CCSD21 staff members and substitute teachers received their Aesop login information over the weekend of November 5-November 7, 2011.
Aesop Login Information
CCSD21 staff and substitutes are assigned login information by Aesop. The default username is a staff member's 10-digit phone number with no punctuation (e.g., 8471234567), and the PIN is a four or five digit number. The PIN is assigned by Aesop by default, but it can (and should) be changed by each staff member and substitute during the user's initial login.
Aesop Basic Training
The CCSD21 Aesop Support Site provides all of the resources that staff members and substitutes alike need to be successful with Aesop. Aesop is now the only way for CCSD21 staff members to report an absence, and it is the only way for substitutes to connect with available positions. This website will continue to be updated as new features are added and new questions arise. As we begin our use of Aesop, we feature the following support videos from Aesop:
- Staff Basic Training Video from Aesop
- Substitute Basic Training Video from Aesop
Aesop Tech Tip--Never use the "Back" button!
When working within Aesop, only use the "Save" or "Cancel" buttons within the website. Do not use the "Back" button in the top of the web browser as this may not allow the website to function properly.
Should you need to get back to your Aesop Home, click the "Home" link on the top of any page in Aesop (pictured below inside the yellow oval).
