Hi, Ive been updating many of the PSCB reports with one of our custom fields. It has worked successfully on many reports, but when I try to add it to the daily and meeting frequency reports, it no longer runs. It seems like I am updating the code correctly as it has worked on other attendance reports. Any ideas on how to troubleshoot? Thanks!

If we are using meeting attendance, and do not have a bridge period for daily attendance, is it possible to use Attendance conversion or Average Daily Attendance to make these Daily attendance reports work? I am curious if any other schools using meeting attendance without a bridge period are able to have Daily attendance numbers.

The report will report all daily attendance values that are manually entered or calculated by a meeting attendance conversion method.

Will those calculated by a meeting attendance conversion only show up in ADA reports or in Daily Attendance reports as well?

Calculated daily attendance values should appear on all reports.

I am trying to run the School Attendance - Daily Attendance Summary and the HS keeps coming up as 100% attendance. The other schools seem to be accurate. What am I missing? Can you please help me? Thank you!

If the report does work properly for an individual school you need to verify the following setup items.

School Calendar
Attendance Codes
Attendance Conversions

Student FTE and Membership

In Meeting Attendance - Selected Date Report (Modify), when exporting to CSV, the student name and attendance code fields have extra whitespace and line breaks included. While not visibly obvious when opening the CSV in Excel for the student name, the attendance code doesn't appear unless the row height is expanded. The line breaks and whitespace are visible when opening the CSV in a text editor.

Thanks for bringing this issue to our attention. It will fixed in the next release of the Attendance Reports bundle which is scheduled for release on 11/15/20.

Good Afternoon. The Dean of the HS just loves this report but it is not giving any Tardy totals. Where do I go to set up that information? The two tardy attendance codes (TS and T) are mapped to the Attendance Code Category of Tardy. Am I missing a step?

Thank you

Hi,
We are running some of the meeting attendance reports, and it would be great to have an average or totals of the codes at either the bottom or top of the screen. So if Im looking at a student, I can see the total # of a code he has for that day. Can this happen? It would be great to have something like this on the Attendance/Enrollment page as well. As you do for daily attendance. Thanks!

Hi,
We ran meeting attendance report for the current day and a specific period, Meeting Attendance - Selected Date. Can we get the course name on there? It's helpful to quickly clarify who is missing from what. And/or on this report Meeting Attendance Report - Selected Date (Modify). Thank you!

We have still been using the student attendance range report from the old Custom Report Bundle. Recently the copy button stopped workling because it used Flash. My question, is there an easy way to rework the copy/export boxes or is there a plan to add a similar Student Attendance Range report for the current PSCB Attendance Reports

The PSCB - Custom Report (Attendance) includes a Student Attendance - Daily Absent/ADA Summary Totals report.

This report will provide you with the same information (and more) as the old CRB report.

We just discovered that the headers are not matching up to the proper period. In this report, it is showing up as:

P1 P2 P3 P4 P5... when actually, it is
P1 HR P2 P3 P4

In the Meeting Attendance - Current Date Summary, it is listed correctly as:
Period 1 Homeroom Period 2 Period 3...
This is how it the headers should be. How can this be corrected?

Thanks for brining this issue to our attention. It will be corrected in next release of the Attendance report plugin.

When looking to modify a student attendance record for Meeting Attendance (middle/high schools), the pop-out window does not display any options. The screen is completely blank. When modifying daily attendance (elementary schools), the information is available to make the change and works properly. Please advise.

What browser and version of Powerschool are you currently using?

Sorry for the delay in responding. Chrome Browser - 87.0.4280.141 PowerSchool V 20.11.0

Morning,
It would be great to pull attendance data by course or teacher. It would help quickly see how one course section is doing compared to another. Thanks

Thank you for the suggestion, but at this time PSCB has no plans to develop this type of report.
