Northshore School District uses Frontline for NSEA, ESP, and NEOPA employees to record their absences.
Below you will find information on how to record your absence, the absence codes that you should use, and helpful tips and links.
For leaves of absence more than 10 days, you will need to complete a leave of absence form and be approved by Human Resources. When you have been approved, you should then pre-arrange your substitute and email the Sub Office with dates and desired sub.
Reporting An Absence
With Frontline, there are two ways to enter your absences.
You can enter them using the automated Frontline phone system 1-800-942-3767 or you can enter them through the Frontline Website or by clicking on the logo below:
To access their system, you'll need your Frontline ID number which is 000 + your five-digit NSD Employee ID.
For example, if your Employee ID is 12345, then your Frontline ID is 00012345. Your Frontline PIN was emailed to your NSD email account. If you forgot your PIN, please contact either your school's Office Manager or the Substitute Office for assistance.
Please note that once you log onto Frontline you will have access to additional training documentation as well as the ability to watch short online training videos on your computer screen.
Please verify that the date(s) and the times of your absence have been entered correctly.
If you are pre-arranging with a particular Substitute who has already agreed to cover for you, please make sure that you assign the Substitute to your job in Frontline. If you forget, the system will begin looking for a qualified Substitute, and we may have two people showing up to fill the absence - the one the system contacted and the one you verbally arranged with to take the job.
If you need to change a reason code for an upcoming absence, you now have the ability to this yourself in Frontline. Please do NOT cancel the job and re-create a new one as this causes issues.
If you are going on an extended leave, you may have to select a teacher that is properly endorsed, depending on your grade level, subject and school and the length of your leave. Please contact the Substitute Office so the correct match can be made.
You now have the ability to identify preferred substitutes and you can add them to your "preferred" list. You can also exclude a Substitute from taking your jobs.
If your hours, position or location are incorrect in Frontline, please call the Substitute Office and let us know as soon as possible.
Please refer to your CBA for definitions of reason codes.

- 01 Illness
- 02 Emergency
- 03 Personal
- 04 Bereavement-please note in the Admin Note field who has passed away when creating the absence
