Do you substitute teach for Bradley County Schools? Good news!
Bradley County Schools have made the decision to transition to an automated Substitute Placement System called Aesop from Frontline Technologies, www.frontlinek12.com/aesop. We are excited to start benefiting from the efficiencies we will gain by using this web-based application. Substitute employees will remain Bradley County Schools' employees. What this means for our current Substitute employees is that you will be able to proactively search for available jobs online or by calling a toll-free number. Aesop notifies Substitutes through automated phone calls or online based on your specific preferences. Substitutes will be able to customize their preference of the schools that they choose to work.
We are anticipating a "Go Live" date of July 1, 2016 and we are currently planning to host training sessions for all of our staff members approximately 1-2 weeks after going live.
What you can expect to receive is a welcome letter that will provide you the website address and your own unique login ID and pin, along with other useful information that will be used to access the system. You will also be provided with a quick start guide to help start using the system. Aesop has a wonderful Learning Center which contains instructional videos and documents which can be accessed at anytime and anywhere, and this will be a great resource to help you adjust to the new system.
We are confident that you will find Aesop to be a very user friendly and an efficient substitute placement process tool that will help all levels of users within the District. Please do not hesitate to ask us any questions that you may have at this point.

What is Read 20? Read 20 is dedicated to creating a strong community of readers by promoting the importance of reading with children from birth at least 20 minutes a day.
Why Read 20?
It’s Magic. Read to them and they learn to read.
There’s a LOT of research on this and it’s clear: if you read to a child at least 20 minutes a day three times a week from a very early age, he or she will: ·Be ready for school ·Get better grades throughout school ·Get a better job ·Be more likely to succeed in life ·Be happier as an adult, with higher self-esteem
Start as soon as your child is born. (Well, okay, maybe the next day.) Reading and talking with a child – even an infant – helps develop a healthy brain and lays the foundation for learning to read when the child enters school.
A child’s brain develops at an incredible rate during the first three years of life. They are developing basic thinking skills even when they are learning how to roll over, crawl and walk. Those who are not exposed to letters, numbers and social skills (like taking turns and saying “please”) start school a full year and a half behind other children. And when you start behind like that, it’s really hard to catch up!
This year we will be welcoming a new assessment in Tennessee! The TNReady assessment will allow us to ensure that we are better preparing our students for life beyond high school - college and career. For more information please check out the following link.
The mission of the Bradley County School System, in partnership with parents and the community, is to develop a literate, self-confident, creative and responsible citizen who can meet life challenges and who values life-long learning.
