How to Update Student Calendars to Make Students In-Session for Attendance Input

Aspen Support Updated by Aspen Support

If a student is listed as "not in session" under the attendance tab and teachers cannot take attendance for them, the school Attendance Manager can update the student calendar to resolve the issue. For the School Year 2020/2021 all students, including the kindergarteners, are supposed to have the BPS-Standard calendar assigned to them.
