When Absence Management Calls You
If an available job has not been filled by another substitute two days before the absence is scheduled to start, Absence Management will automatically start calling substitutes in an effort to fill the job.

You can always call into Absence Management (see “When You Call Absence Management” section above) to hear a list of all available jobs.

When Absence Management calls you, be sure to say a loud and clear “Hello” after answering the call. This will ensure that the system knows you picked up the call.
