Seasonal or Temporary Tech Assistance

Do you have specific times (for example school start-up, shut-down, or over spring break) when you could use some additional hands to help respond to mounting technology assistance requests or tasks? Do you have a one time project that you could use an extra person to help you meet a looming deadline such as the rollout of new student or teacher machines or carts?

We employ technology students from local colleges just for this purpose, as an inexpensive way to assist you in meeting the mounting workload that new or aging deployments can cause, or at seasonal times when the number of simultaneous requests dramatically increases.

This service is customizable to meet your needs. Learn about additional technology services at https://www.hcesc.org/technology.

Ohio Teaching Jobs

OhioTeachingJobs.org is the gateway to finding and posting positions for employment within southwest Ohio schools.

Membership in the OhioTeachingJobs.org (Greater Cincinnati School Application Consortium) provides school districts a streamlined way of finding, evaluating, and hiring the most qualified job candidates. Through the use of a large and growing database, district personnel can find the ideal certificated, classified, and administrative applicants.

Created for the unique needs of school systems, the consortium automates application storage, retrieval, and tracking. The system can be used to find teachers, substitute teachers, administrators, and non-teaching employees.

  • School administrators can use AppliTrack to manage the application process from beginning-to-end without depending on paper or time-intensive clerical work.
  • Applications are automatically added to a fully searchable database. When it comes time to hire a new teacher, a point-and-click search menu allows administrators to find qualified candidates in minutes.
  • May be integrated with Gallup Teacher Insight, AdminFit, TeacherFit and JobFit candidate selection tools.
  • Shared cost. The consortium allows districts to share the costs of running the system.

Because of the system’s simple application process, applicants are likely to apply to all of the districts within the consortium. This increased pool improves the district’s chance of finding better teachers.

Consortium now over 50 districts and organizations in multiple southwest Ohio counties. Hamilton County ESC manages all aspects of the consortium system.

Absence Management Service

Membership in the Absence Management (formerly Aesop) consortium provides school districts a streamlined way of finding substitutes and filling employee absences in a timely fashion by utilizing an automated substitute placement system that posts and fills openings using both the phone and the Web. Through the use of a large substitute database, district personnel can choose qualified educators to provide coverage in classrooms.

In partnership with Clermont County ESC and through Comprehensive Substitute Solutions, we employ substitutes directly, relieving districts of the challenges of recruiting, employing, managing, and paying substitutes.

  • Absence Management (formerly Aesop) provides school districts a quick, automated way of filling employee absences via both the phone and the web
  • Because multiple districts share the system, substitutes are more likely to apply to other districts within the consortium. This increased pool improves the districts’ chances of finding more qualified substitute teachers.
  • As the host, Hamilton County ESC provides database entry and management, and other services to ensure the system’s maximum efficiency
  • Project Management – Hamilton County ESC organizes meetings, communicates with Absence Management (formerly AESOP), and manages all other aspects of the system
  • Help Desk – Hamilton County ESC provides ongoing and timely technical assistance to district personnel and substitutes
  • Districts save money by sharing the costs of running the system
  • Consortium continues to grow – now over 40 districts and other educational organizations throughout southwest Ohio, serving thousands of educators and other school personnel
