• Frontline Absence Management 

    Frontline Absence Management is the official Pittsburgh Public Schools absence management system. This system allows the District and its employees to proactively manage employee absences, school vacancies and substitute assignments. 

    For positions that require substitute coverage, it is the District’s procedure that substitutes must be assigned through the Frontline Absence Management system. This is required in order to comply with various Collective Bargaining Agreements and Pennsylvania School Code. It is essential to adhere to stated procedures in order to comply with applicable laws, inform accurate reporting, and ensure appropriate payments are issued to substitutes.
