How do I use this benefit?

How do I track and use my sick leave in Irvine Unified School District?

Substitutes can track and request use of paid sick via our Frontline (formerly Aesop) system (directions below) at

*As substitute teachers take half-day and full-day assignments, those hours accumulate in groups of four for a half-day and eight for a full day.

To use the leave, proceed as follows:

  • Log into Frontline (formerly Aesop).
  • Click on the Paid Sick Leave Balance  button
  • Create an absence on the day you are requesting the leave.
  • Choose the reason for the leave- this will be AB1522 Leave.
  • Choose the number of hours of leave you will use. You must have the corresponding balance of hours available to you.
  • Confirm the Absence.
  • You will be paid for those hours of sick leave on the next available pay warrant (check).

Do I have to request a substitute to cover for me in my absence?

No.  You do not have to request a substitute to fill in for you when you request leave.

Who do I contact if I have questions?

Human Resources staff can answer your questions at or visit our FAQ page.
