At the beginning of the school year it is important that School Options, School Calendar and the Absence Code Table are set up correctly. These options are usually setup by the District office. Verify that these options are correct prior to performing the Daily Attendance and/or Period Attendance functions. If these options are set up incorrectly contact the District Office for assistance.

Navigate to the School Info/School Options page. 

Select the areas that meet your school site’s needs. In the Attendance Type field, select Daily to setup attendance on a daily basis. Select Negative Attendance in the Attendance Reporting field to compute the correct attendance figures for monthly reporting.  Typically, for most schools, this information does not change.  But before school starts, each year, this information should be verified.
