Absence Management

PowerSchool Unified Talent Smart Find Express
Weatherford ISD uses Skyward Employee Access Time Off to report an absence and PowerSchool Unified Talent Smart Find Express to request a substitute to fill in during your absence.
All employees are responsible for entering their own absences in Skyward. There is an option to request a sub while reporting an absence in the system and if checked, Skyward will link to Smart Find express so you can enter a sub at the same time.
Smart Find Express is available 24/7 by telephone or by internet.  Employees can review sub requests, check their personal information, and create a favorite substitute request list.

 Facts and Common Errors
  • If you are locked out of the system there is a option to use the PIN reminder and to get assistance with Login problems.
  • A full day absence spans more than 4 hours. Even one minute over 4 hours is recognized by the system as a full day. 
  • If you enter a job and request a substitute then later discover you no longer need a sub, please remember to cancel the job! If a sub reports to work you will be charged 1/2 day personal leave.
If you are experiencing difficulties with the sub system, please call the Substitute Specialist, Cyndi Cantrell,  at 817-598-2800 or email at: [email protected]
