Multi-School Views  

Aeries has recently enhanced Student Attendance to allow users to view a student's attendance that exists in any school the student attended in the current year. However, only the Student Attendance at the school the user is logged into will be available to edit. 


When logged into Student Attendance for a specific school, the default view is for that school. If you wish to view attendance details for this student at another school they attended, select the school from the drop-down menu. Notice that this view is Read-Only. 

The Fill Periods, Update ATT Data, Refresh Totals, and Print Readmit Slip buttons are not displayed when in Read Only View.   The Legend, Quick Print, and Print Attendance Notes buttons are available in Read Only view.

Attendance is only editable at the school you are logged into.

The Attendance page will display the following:

  • Basic demographic information on the top portion of the page.  
  • Attendance summary data fields on the bottom of the page. 
  • Tardy and Absent letter totals above the attendance calendar.
  • The current day is highlighted in yellow.
  • The RED FLAG  icon, located at the top right corner, which is used to flag any student with attendance issues. By clicking the flag icon, an attendance Red Flag will be created and an attendance comment can be added for a student.  Before adding a Red Flag, check district protocol and procedures.




Absence codes can have a color assigned to them through the Update Absence Code page. If colors are assigned to an absence code the colors will display on the Student Attendance page as well as the Attendance legend.


Information on assigning Absence code colors is described in this document Setup Absence Codes



When colors are assigned to Absence codes, the Attendance page will display a color options feature so users can select how or if they want the colors to display.



Under the Attendance Calendar grid, the student's attendance data is summarized in two tables. On the left, attendance data is provided in Totals by Year, with individual Term summaries below the Year summary. The summary data at a daily attendance school is shown below:


On the right side, a Totals by Absence Code table is provided. Below the Totals by Absence Code, the attendance data is summarized by Excused vs. Unexcused.


At a period attendance school, the summary data is also provided by Year and Term. The summary by Absence Code data, including the Excused and Unexcused totals, is provided for both the All Day code and by period:


Note that Suspensions are not included in the Excused or Unexcused totals. Suspensions are summarized in the Totals by Year/Term table. 


Daily Attendance  

Clicking in the All Day code field on the Attendance form will manually input an absence code for a specific date. The description for the code selected will display to the right.  


NOTE: If the School Settings option "Populate All-Day Attendance Code Automatically" is enabled, this option will automatically flag the All Day code in Attendance when all periods in a given day are flagged with absence code(s). If all periods contain the same absence code, the All Day code will receive that value, otherwise it will be flagged with the Unverified Absence (typically "A").  


NOTE: If the School Settings option "Populate All-Day Attendance Code Automatically" is enabled, and the school has School Program of Remote Asynchronous or a Student has a Special Program of Remote Asynchronous,  this option will automatically flag the All Day code in Attendance when all periods in a given day are flagged with absence code(s). If all periods contain the same absence code, the All Day code will receive that value, otherwise it will be flagged with the Unverified Absence (typically "A").  



Selecting from the menu below will result in the following:




  • The Update ATT Data button will update a student’s attendance with an All Day absence code for a specific date range (displayed above).
  • The Quick Print button will print the student’s full year of attendance. 
  • The Print Attendance Notes button will print all notes for the entire year or a specific date range.
  • The Refresh Totals button will refresh totals after entry on the Attendance page.
  • The Print Readmit Slip button will print from a receipt printer or from a laser printer. 

Period Attendance  

Clicking in the All Day code field on the Attendance form will manually input an absence code for a specific date and auto-populate all the periods assigned for the day.  



Clicking a specific Period for a student on the Attendance form will manually input an absence code for individual periods.



Fill Periods, located below the attendance calendar, can be selected at the bottom of the form for additional options. This drop-down field will only be available if a user has delete permissions to YTD.



Selecting from the menu below will result in the following:




  • The Update ATT Data button will update a student’s attendance for a specified date range with the selected Absence Code from the dropdown. Any Unverified absence codes (usually "A") in the period fields will be updated by this process. 
    • Update All Day code with this reason - the All Day code will be updated
    • Fill all class periods with this reasonall class periods will be updated
  • The Quick Print button will print the student’s full year of attendance. 
  • The Print Attendance Notes button will print all notes for the entire year or a specific date range.

If updating attendance will affect attendance totals and ADA reporting, such as the Monthly Attendance Report, a warning will display. It is recommended that attendance changes that affect ADA reporting be verified before continuing with changing the attendance data.
