For teacher absences, TST BOCES offers a fully automated substitute calling service for teachers and substitutes in participating component school districts. At this time, the participating school districts are Candor, Dryden, Groton, Ithaca, Lansing, Newfield, South Seneca and Trumansburg.
Substitutes wishing to work in any of the TST BOCES component schools except the Ithaca City School District and the Groton School District, can use our regional application form. To access these forms, please go to the links below.
The automated substitute calling system uses Aesop, which is a substitute placement and absence management system available by phone and online.
Mary Kay LaLonde is the contact person at TST BOCES for problems and questions related to Aesop. She can be reached by calling 607-257-1551 during regular business hours (7 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday while school is in session).
