Unity School District is using an automated service that greatly simplifies and streamlines the process of finding and managing substitute jobs in this district. This service, called FRONTLINE, utilizes both the telephone and the Internet to assist you in locating jobs in this school district. The FRONTLINE Absence Management system is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Frontline uses three methods to make jobs available to substitutes:

  1. You can search for and accept available jobs, change personal settings, update your calendar, and personalize your available call times by clicking here. If the employee has uploaded lesson plans on the internet, you will be able to view them online once you take the job!

  2. You may interact with the Frontline system by way of a toll-free, automated voice instruction menu at 1-800-942-3767. Here, you can proactively search for jobs and manage existing jobs. We recommend calling in to check the computer recording of your name by pressing Option 4.

  3. Frontline will also make phone calls to substitutes to offer jobs. The District Office has selected the following hours as standard call times when the Absence Management service may call for substitutes; 5:25 am – 11:59 am in the morning and 4:30 pm – 8:30 pm in the evening.

Important Notes:

  • In order to access the Absence Management system, you will need to enter your ID and PIN number

  • If you accept a job, Frontline will issue a confirmation number. Please remember that your transaction is not complete until Frontline supplies you with a confirmation number.

  • Frontline will automatically make a recording of your name for Unity School District on the phone system. To review or change the recording of your name, call in to Frontline and select option 4.

We are confident that you will find the Absence Management experience beneficial and enjoyable. Please take the time to view this helpful tutorial video.
