What code should I use?

  • A - Student is absent from scheduled learning activities on this day.
  • NoCont - The teacher has been unable to make any contact with the student during this time. Students with consecutive "No Contact" codes in all of their classes will be flagged for a safety/wellness check so it is important to only use this code when you are unable to make contact with the student/family.
Students are assumed Present: Student has engaged in some or all remote learning opportunities, as directed by the teacher. Note: engagement during remote learning includes synchronous engagement, asynchronous engagement, submission of assignments and responding to teacher feedback.

What if all students participated?

You must still Post attendance. Click on the Post button to post the attendance.

What if I click on the wrong code?

If you select the wrong code, click on the P code. You will receive a popup message confirming the change

There should only be one code selected per day, per student. If you accidentally enter multiple codes, click on the P to remove the codes. Reenter the correct attendance.
