To enter an absence:
A modal will appear:
Below is a description of each field:
|Start Date||This is the date of the first day of the absence.|
|End Date||This is the date of the last day of the absence.|
|Explanation||The reason for the absence.|
|Provided By||The person who provided the absence information – this may be a parent in the event of a holiday or sickness etc. Or a teacher for an individual sporting event. For sporting events that require more than 1 student to attend, it is recommended that a Calendar Event is created and the roll marked there.|
|Categories||The category that the absence is to be placed in – this can be one or more categories E.g. Sick and Chicken Pox – it is totally dependent on the school policies. Absence categories are maintained by the school’s administration person in the System Codes section.|
|Absence is school approved||Click this box to mark the absence as School Approved, meaning it will not count towards any government attendance calculations. E.g. A student who is away at a regional sports carnival and therefore regarded as being present for attendance calculations but away from the school.|
|On-Site activity||Click this box to mark the absence as being at an on-site activity. E.g. A student is at the regional sporting event which happens to be held at your school. So the student is absent from normal school timetabled classes, but actually on-site.|
