The Attendance page can be accessed for attendance update or display. Currently enrolled students will display for the teacher signed into Teacher Portal.
NOTE: Attendance MUST be submitted regardless if there are no absences or tardies.
From the Pages navigation tree, search for Attendance.
To take attendance, the teacher can click in the applicable boxes of A for Absent or T for Tardy to the right of the student’s name. Changes are effective immediately.
The attendance page uses a visual indicator to highlight student rows. When users hover their mouse over a student row, that row will be highlighted in green.
To change the date to post attendance for, click the mouse on the Attendance Date dropdown at the top of the page. The current date will display in green in the date dropdown.
The All Remaining Students are Present button at the top of the page can be used to mark all students present for the selected date.
After attendance has been submitted for a period, a green message will display the date and time the attendance was submitted.
The attendance page has an Absence Totals area on the right side of the page that shows a total of absences that have been given to a student by type of absence.
Certain attendance rules can be applied by the district. They can include restricting the times that teachers are able to post attendance. If the district has restricted attendance to only be taken during class time and that time has passed, the ability to take attendance will be disabled. The following is an example of a message that will display to the teacher.
