||Contact your student's counselor.|
|Do all teachers post grades and attendance?
||Yes. The PowerSchool Student Information System pulls this information automatically from the data entered in the teacher's grade book. Grades and attendance information is available for viewing as soon as a teacher enters the information in their grade book.|
|How often can we expect attendance to be updated?
||Teachers are asked to record attendance each |
class period. Teachers whose schedules prohibit period-by-period recording (i.e. gym, band) input their attendance by 3:30 pm that day. Teachers may only enter attendance codes for Absence (U), Tardy (T) or Late (L). All other codes such as Excused (E) or Field Trip (F) are entered by attendance clerks. The attendance office enters a wide range of codes as they receive information
from parents, the library, or other locations where attendance is monitored. Procedures for excusing your child from school remain the same.
|What do codes in the grade book and attendance
||Late - excused tardy|
||Absent - unexcused|
