  1. Allow teachers to mass add attendance codes in the Teacher Portal Attendance page

    For the 2020-2021 school year, schools are adding 'Engagement" attendance codes for teachers to mark for every students. This is in accordance with the new SB-98 CA legislation.

    This idea was provided during the LACOE Attendance Symposium on 8/13/20. Teachers would like the ability to select a particular engagement attendance code and mass add it to all students then if needed, deselect appropriate individual students when appropriate thus saving time selecting codes for each individual student.

    Similar to how teachers mass add assignment results in the Aeries Gradebook.

  2. Teacher Attendance - allow sorting by the Additional Stu field columns configured on Portal Options.

    To help with Hybrid instruction, allow sorting by the Additional Stu field columns configured on Portal Options on the Teacher Attendance page.

  3. Teacher Attendance - Allow Quick Attendance Notes

    To help with Hybrid instructions, Allow Quick Attendance Notes on the Teacher Attendance page.

    For students engaged in distance learning on a particular day, a teacher must track the means by which the student engaged that day. Attendance Notes is a possible way to track this information instead of the Gradebook. But Attendance Notes are not easily added for large groups of students. This feature would make it a simple process of checking the correct box(es) for students on how they engaged that day.

    Here are some possible ideas:


    • Add a new Portal Option to list ATN.CD code values (comma…

  4. Show Attendance Code Descriptions in Teacher Portal

    With the new DL attendance codes teachers would like to easily determine the attendance code definition by being able to hover over the code value for the description to show.

  5. Classroom Attendance - Display Additional Student Data Fields

    To help with Hybrid instruction, - Display Additional Student Data Fields on the Classroom Attendance page.
    For A/B Groups of students, students will be flagged using a Student User Code field. This information can be displayed to teachers on the Teacher Attendance page, but if office staff have to take attendance for a teacher, the Classroom Attendance page also need to display this information for each student.

    Hello, this idea/bug has been completed in the 9/28/2020 update. Here are the Revision Notes:
    This page now displays the additional student fields configured on the Portal Options page. Also, the Stu ID, Grade, Track, Program, and these new student field columns can be sorted ascending or descending. Also, the section number is now displayed in the table header. Removed the ‘Include Inactive Teachers’ checkbox if the school is using section staff.

  6. Teacher Attendance - Back-posting attendance should not limit to the Bell Schedule

    Please allow teachers to change previous days attendance regardless of Portal Options to limit attendance to before or after a period time. Time of day should only affect today's date.

    Teacher Attendance: When time restrictions for taking attendance are enabled but either forward-posting or back-posting attendance is also enables, posting attendance on days other than the current day will now not enforce the time/bell schedule restrictions.
