**New** For 2020 School Year

We are excited to announce McKinney ISD’s new substitute management system, TimeClock Plus. This will consolidate the substitute and time clock systems which results in greater efficiency and accuracy as it relates to substitute assignments and pay. In addition to accessing TimeClock Plus on your laptop or desktop computer, you will now have access to the TimeClock Plus App where you can manage your assignments, enter your availability and receive notifications, all via your smart device. Also, McKinney ISD substitutes will clock IN and OUT at the wall mounted time clock located at each campus.

The absence management module of TimeClock Plus is still under construction. When available later this summer, you will receive an email with a training video, information about the TimeClock Plus app and how to clock in and out.

Continue to monitor your district email for important information about next school year.

McKinney ISD will discontinue the use of SmartFind Express when TimeClock Plus for substitutes has been implemented.
