Once logged into the Teacher Portal, from the Pages navigation tree, search for Attendance.
The Attendance page can be accessed for information, attendance submission and attendance updates. Currently enrolled students will display when a teacher logs into Aeries and navigates to the Attendance page.
The Aeries Web Version Teacher portal was designed to avoid “Submit” buttons. All information is saved on the fly and does not require a “Save” button to be pressed.
There are two types attendance pages available to Teachers:
- Class Attendance
- Attendance by Photo
Class Attendance ↑
Below is an example of the Attendance page. The page will display the Section(s) taught for a Period when the Period is selected from the Dropdown. In a Flex Scheduling school, if a Teacher does not have Attendance Permission for a Section, it will not display.
On the Class Attendance page, there are several icons available for each student that allow the teacher quick access to information. The options available are:
- View Student Profile - This icon takes the teacher to the Student Profile page for this student
- View Attendance Detail - This icon takes the teacher to the Attendance Detail page for this student
- View Contacts - this icon opens the Quick Contacts sub-menu for this student.
Visual cues have been added to the Teacher Attendance page to avoid teachers leaving the page as data is saved.
A spinning icon next to the absences and a green message at the top right of the page will display as teachers are entering attendance.
Teachers can be given permission to add Attendance Notes and Quick Attendance Notes. With the Attendance Notes teachers are able to add a comment about the attendance.
Attendance by Photo ↑
The Attendance by Photo page allows teachers to take attendance by a seating chart. For more information on creating Seating Charts, please refer to the following article: Attendance By Photo and Seating Chart
NOTE: Teachers MUST submit Attendance everyday. If all students are present, use the All Remaining Students Are Present button to log attendance submission.
