Alabama Districts Adopt Employee Self Service Solution

Mountain Brook City Schools and the Choctaw County Schools have decided to implement the new Employee Self Service (ESS) application, now available for NextGen financial management solution.

Mountain Brook City Schools in Birmingham, Alabama, comprises six schools with 618 employees.

“The ESS software has served to help in the paperless environment by allowing the uploading of employee documents and making the employee feel more empowered by the utilization of these abilities,” said Karen Lusk-Smith, CPA, CGFO, Chief School Finance Officer for Mountain Brook City Schools.

The NextGen ESS application provides K-12 district employees access to view leave balance/history, current benefit elections, deductions, and direct deposit information, in addition to managing personal information.

“I can see how ESS will greatly enhance and streamline our accounting department, especially by empowering our employees," said Kevin L. Howard, Human Resource Director of the Choctaw County Board of Education. "There are many functions that the employees will be able to do for themselves, which will greatly enhance the efficiency of our department.”
