To request planned leave, either personal or professional leave, please enter the request in the Frontline / Aesop system.
Beginning September, 2011, schools will enter and reconcile all staff absences and certificated substitute "time cards" in Aesop. Once reconciled, this information is electronically submitted to payroll for automatic upload into the Skyward system. Paper copies of the Form 59A for leave are no longer required ~ these requests should be made electronically through Aesop. During the course of the year, we will be working to move the Professional Leave Request (Form 322) to be completely electronic as well.
Central Office department staff, log in to Skyward Employee Access - http://ea.southkitsap.wa-k12.net
ALL leave requests for all leave types are now electronically reported and recorded, except for Transportation bus drivers and FNS regular staff.
If your leave request requires additional paperwork (ie. jury summons, doctor's note) please enter the request online and forward a copy of your paperwork to Human Resources.
For leave assistance contact Payroll Services 360-874-7025 (Monday - Friday, 7:30 am -4:30 pm)
