Each student's entire schedule of sections for the year, along with the Start and Stop Dates for each section, is displayed on the Course Attendance (CAR) page. When Attendance (ATT) and Course Attendance (CAR) are initialized, Course Attendance (CAR) Start and Stop Dates are pre-populated for the entire year for all sections in a student’s schedule. When a student's schedule is changed, the changes are added to the student's Course Attendance record. 


To access the page, filter Pages by "course attendance" or navigate to Student Data > Scheduling > Course Attendance.


In a Flex Scheduling school, Flex Period (FTF) and Class Calendar (CCL) data are displayed along with the primary Section Staff (SSE) record assigned to the section . If a new teacher is assigned as primary on the Section Staff record in MST, the CAR record will automatically display the new teacher.  


In the example below, the student is scheduled for sections in Terms F, S, and Y. All sections are displayed with Start and Stop Dates for the entire year. 


To display classes for a particular date, type in the date or use the calendar drop-down to pick a date and click Refresh



Note:  The Issue Credit feature has been adjusted to support schools using Flex Scheduling and Section Staff. 



Add a Course Attendance Record


Adding Course Attendance Records is useful in cases where back-filling missing section data after the student is enrolled, where CAR records were deleted through user error, or when CAR records are accidentally deleted while dropping a student on the Demographics page.

In the example below, a Civics class taken in the Fall during Flex Period 'AM 4' was accidentally deleted and we need to add it again.



Click on the Add New Record button to display the section picker.


The section, if known ahead of time, can be entered in the search box and it will display in the drop-down. Other search methods include searching by Section Number, Course Number, Course Title, Teacher Name, or Staff ID. 



Click on the desired section and enter the Start Date and Stop Date. Click on the Save icon when ready.



The school Calendar is used to check for valid school days and a yellow message will display for any potential date issues.



Once the correct date is entered, the CAR record is saved.

The student's Course Attendance can be printed by Term and/or beginning with a selected date. Additionally, you can choose to print the student's current class schedule and/or limit to only sections at the current school.
