Class Attendance Enhancement V2_1

NOT COMPATIBLE WITH PS 7.2. Download link has been removed until a updated version is available.

The pages included in this package improve upon the class attendance page modified by Jason Treadwell, Tim Scoff and Roger Sprik to allow Teachers to enter meeting attendance comments for Students. New in v2: Adds Student Photos and Alerts

When Teachers go to take attendance they will notice 2 submit buttons. Submit and Submit w/ Comments. Here is how it works;

Field Validator

PowerSchool 7.2 now includes Data Validation for the Students/Teachers tables.

State reporting needs, among others, are rising. With them is an increased need for schools to rely on multiple sources of input for that state reporting. Problem is the more people who are involved in inputting the data the bigger the chance that things are going to get entered incorrectly. Pearson is starting to make things a little easier but its not quite enough yet. So we created a script you can use (and expand) to make things a little easier.

Daily Attendance View v1.1

A set of pages targeted to Admin’s and Teachers. Provides a “Daily Attendance” link when logged into a school who uses Daily Attendance. Will list all the students in the school who are absent and their bridge period comment if one exists. The Admin version has a link to identify who hasn’t taken attendance yet. The Teacher version includes a “My Schedule” link that lets the Teacher see their matrix schedule.

The 1st graph shows (Only applies/shows in schools using daily attendance) is a pie chart of the selected students daily attendance, the chart will show Present, Absent and Tardy totals, based on your attendance code setup.

The 2nd graph shows the current (not stored) students grades using current term display and the corresponding classes’ averages. The graph will only show classes that are set to be stored.
