The Mass Change Period Absences form has been adjusted to work in a Flex Scheduling school.

The Mass Change Period Absences form is used for entering and updating absence codes. From this form you can mass update attendance by a Section, a List of Students by Student Numbers, a Grade Level, using a Student Group or by running a Keep/Skip Query.  Attendance Notes can also be added to each student updated during the Mass Change Period Absences process.  An option is available in the lower left to Include Attendance Note

Mass Change Period Absences form procedures:

  1. Use this process to change an Unverified or Blank Code to a specific Code.
  2. Determine which students will be included in the change:
