FRONTLINE ABSENCE MANAGEMENT
Frontline Employee User
All District employees with the exception of day-to-day substitutes will receive an “Employee User" account to access Frontline.
As an employee user, it is your responsibility to enter your absence requests (Sick Days, Personal Days, Vacation Days, etc.) into the system to guarantee accurate pay and accrual tracking, in addition to correct coverage if a substitute is needed. If an employee is going to be absent for 3 or more consecutive sick days the employee must also complete a Leave of Absence Request Form.
Frontline can be accessed by employees via a mobile application, a web-based application, and a dial-in phone system without having to be within the PPS Network. Once downloaded, employees may need to enter the four-digit invitation code which is 7354 to access Frontline via the Frontline mobile app on your smartphone. To access Frontline via the dial-in Frontline service employees must call the toll-free number 1-800-942-3767. In order to access the dial-in Frontline service you must use your Phone Login ID (Phone Login) and PIN. Please note that your Phone Login ID will be your main phone number registered on your employee record. In order to officially update your personal information (phone, address, email, etc) with the District, you must fill out the Pittsburgh Public Schools Personnel Information Change Request Form.
For further information on how to use Frontline Absence Management (Frontline), we encourage you to complete the Employee Basic Training Video and the Employee Advanced Training Video. You may also refer to the Frontline Employee User Resources listed below.
