Complete Attendance for a Specific Period

Path: Campus Instruction > Attendance

When attendance is required to be taken, the number of periods for which attendance needs to be submitted will be displayed next to the Attendance tab. Attendance can be entered either using a roster list or seating chart. Users can select their preference upon accessing the Attendance tab or set the seating chart as the default in Account Settings.

Teachers are only allowed to enter attendance for the current day until midnight. After that time, attendance must be entered by the Attendance Office. In addition, teachers can only change attendance up to the point that the attendance office processes the events. Check with the district’s process and procedure for more information.

  1. To mark a student absent, select the A for absent.
  2. To mark a student tardy, select the T for tardy. The comment box for each student can be edited once a child is marked absent or tardy.

  3. Comments become part of the students attendance records and are visible in the attendance tools that are used to process attendance by the attendance clerk.
  4. When finished taking attendance, click Save. A message will appear indicating that attendance has been saved. Click OK. The period for which attendance was submitted will be marked with a checkmark.
