Employee Absence

DMPS employees can access the following links to request leave and/or report absences.

If you need a substitute, the SmartFind Express website allows you to report absences and also view previous absences. Log-in is required with employee ID and PIN number. Employees may instead wish to report an absence by calling the Automated Absence Reporting System at 619-6231.

In addition, current substitutes may visit the SmartFind Express website to view jobs.

If you have questions regarding SmartFind Express, please call the Employee Attendance Center at 515-242-8100.

The NovaTime website allows all other employees to request leave. The system is still being implemented throughout the district. Log-in is required with employee ID and your district password.
