  1. Teacher Attendance - Highlight the Attendance row when selected

    In Aeries Gradebook, when you click on a student's name, or hover over the entire row of that student is highlighted/made darker.

    Is there any way that that could happen in Attendance? When you hover on a student of when you click on an "Absent", and "N", or even "D", there is no change in the color of that student's row.

    I know that for me, it is easier to keep the marks for a particular student specifically for that student if his/her row is highlighted.

  2. Display attendance time on Attendance Submission Log report

    The Attendance Submission log page shows the time attendance was taken, but the printable report only shows the date attendance was taken, not the time. Using Aeries query also displays the datetime fields as date only.

  3. Placeholder image for photos

    When a student photo does not exist, instead of the Seating Chart in the Attendance by Photo screen showing a broken image icon (because it is, imo, malformed HTML (a bug!)) load a static placeholder image.

    <img src="data:image/jpg;base64," style="width:auto; height:auto;">

    Is invalid HTML, the source is not complete because it contains no actual data, eg an image of 0 length. Detect this state when building your base64 insert into the HTML and substitute in the placeholder when LEN = 0 for the data pulled from PIC.

  4. Sections attendance consolidated into 1 button to click

    I was told that with Flex Schools, "when multiple sections exist for each teacher and period, the "Attendance to be Taken (Marked as Complete) by Section" setting needs to be enabled so that each section is marked correctly in the CAS table since the attendance log (CAS) is stored by Section number."

    This means for Flex Scheduling any teacher that has multiple sections will have to press the submit button multiple times.

    We were wondering if this could be consolidated into 1 button

  5. Attendance reports need to honor the Block Schedule Calendar and MST days of the week

    The Weekly Attendance report needs to honor the Block Schedule Calendar and print "Not Enrolled" on the days the period does not meet.

    Also, the Weekly Engagement report needs to honor the Block Schedule Calendar/MST Days of the Week

  6. Attendance Management - Mass Add Attendance Notes Without Absence

    Currently, the Attendance Management screen can add absences with or without notes, but you cannot do the inverse and add only notes without an absence code. Since we are using notes to track engagement, this means that clerks have a difficult time adding notes for classes.

  7. Truancy (Attendance) Letters Based on Age

    The truancy 1, 2, and 3 letters are generated at the school sites. In previous years, we have kept only students grades 1-12 to receive the truancy letters. To stay compliant, we must include students who are 6 years old and older to receive these letters.

    Since this would be based on a student's 6th birthday and accounting for absences to generate letters AFTER their 6th birthday.

    What would be the best approach or query(ies) to do this since we cannot send a letter to a student who just turned six who is qualified to receive letters... when the student…

  8. Bell Schedule - Copy to Multiple Days

    It would be helpful in some situations, such as when schools may fluctuate between schedules due to the pandemic, to be able to quickly copy a single bell schedule to multiple days at once instead of having to set the schedule one day at a time. Being able to multi-select days by either control-click, checkbox, or some kind of "copy to all subsequent regular days of same name" (so all following mondays, or tuesdays, etc as the currently selected day) would be great.

    Thank you!

  11. make the lunch count field required for all of our K-5 sites

    Is it possible to make the lunch count field required for all of our K-5 sites? 
    I have checked our portal options and I see that we have the field enabled; however, I can't seen to figure out if there is a way to make this field required.

  12. Display Student Class Schedule next to Attendance record

    I am an attendance clerk at a high school. Typically the students have six teachers. There is a large blank space next to the student's attendance record where you can place the schedule. This would make things much more efficient for us. We currently have to go back and forth from attendance page to schedule page all day yet there is sufficient space next to attendance to add the student's schedule of classes. As attendance clerks, we have to make corrections to teacher errors all day. This would make this process more efficient.

  13. Improve Functionality of Teacher Attendance Mass Apply

    Here are three changes that would improve the usability of the new Mass Apply feature for attendance:

    1) Having the menu hidden by default is a nuisance for a teacher who has to use it 7 times a day. There should be an option to have the filter open by default. Perhaps a checkbox?
    2) The filter should remember the last setting used. For example if a teacher is filtering for a specific cohort that corresponds with a day the week, they would only have to set the filter up once at the start of the day instead of 7…

  18. Missing Attendance - Add Different time stamps for Attendance Submission

    Our elementary schools are set up with AM and PM sessions. Each teacher has two teacher records, one for AM and one for PM. When taking attendance, both sessions are time-stamped with the same AM time-stamp. For security issues, our office staff needs to know when the teacher has taken attendance for the PM session.

  20. Add STU Fields to Attendance Reports

    As we have a variety of attendance options for students currently that vary daily, making attendance calls depends on knowing if the student is on campus that particular day. Our district keeps that data in STU.U12, and it would be extremely helpful to be able to pull up on attendance reports.

    Student safety dictates that we begin with students who should be on campus, but are not. Currently we are expending a great deal of time cross referencing lists or using KEEP queries to run absence list by attendance hybrid type (we have 8 possible...)
