Automated Substitute Call-In Service

In March 2005, OCM BOCES began offering the Automated Substitute Call-In Service as an efficient and cost-effective alternative for arranging substitutes. We started with seven school districts and are now currently servicing 17 school districts. The cost to districts decreased by approximately 30 percent within the first six years of the program and the absence fill rate for the 2009-2010 school year was 95.3 percent.


The system employs the latest technology to provide the best-qualified substitute for an absence or vacancy by using custom set parameters based on individual district needs.


Employees can create absences and specify/prearrange a substitute at any time. The system will instantaneously create a list of the best-qualified substitute based on set parameters and call those substitutes during the next call-out period.
