Which of these sessions would you recommend for a school nurse, or is there anything that would apply?

That is a good question. We don't get a lot of interest from nurses, so we don't have anything specific to them, so it depends on how well they know PS. If they are new to PS, I would recommend PS 101 and the sessions on utilizing reports and form letters.

What session(s) will Roger Sprik be leading?

Has anyone else noticed that the Teacher Attendance Submission page will not display who has or has not taken attendance until mid-morning?   

We try to check by 8:30 am so we can start prompting teachers to take attendance and then calling to see where absent students are.

I wonder if there is a time setting someplace or something that PS can adjust?

Go to:  School< Attendance < Teacher Attendance Submission

Thank you

Ours displays right away.  I also check every morning to see who has taken attendance and it is showing up for us.

MAYBE this is it????

I found in the PS Community that someone else said "Teacher Attendance Submission Status report does not display correctly in 19.11.0.0" 

     We are on version 19.11.0.0
They did not say what was not working but ? the response was: 
A Fix has been released in PowerSchool 19.11.0.1.

I am puzzled  by something and hope maybe you can help.  We are still using the Gradebook.  A teacher says when she enters a NHI in her gradebook for a student, then at a later date the student hands in the assignment and then the teacher enters a percent score, then mysteriously after a couple days the score reverts back to NHI.  I am not able to replicate the problem.  Have you ever seen this?  It makes no sense to me.

Thanks for your help,

I have not seen this before. What does NHI stand for? Is that a special code?

Yes, it stands for Not Handed In.  The teacher enters it in their Gradebook Preferences under Score Codes.

What version of PowerSchool are you using? It may be a bug that was resolved in a later version.

I have two PowerSchool issues going on today and I'm wondering if they might be related or fixed by running a special operation. One student who is marked absent isn't showing up when we run the Absentee Report at Start Page > Attendance > Absentee Report. Another student isn't showing up in one F grade search, but appears in another F report.

Things just seem goofy. Is there a Special Operations function (under System > Special Operations) that I could run? We have a banner that says we were to be updated to 19.4.5 last Saturday but I see we're still at 19.4.3.

Thanks!

Hi Jane,

Have you tried Special Functions >Attendance Functions and then Refresh Premier Attendance Views Data. May help with the attendance.  Do not know what to tell you about the grade issue.  Sorry.

Thanks,  Kris Just ran the attendance refresh and it didn't fix the attendance issue. :-( It's weird because other reports find the student. I think this is a custom report but it's used every day. I don't know why it would suddenly not work.

Well dang!

Did you try Special Operation Recalculate Attendance?

We have trained people to search for sped students by using the field verified_disability=1.  With the sped data being entered into special programs now, how do you search for data since it is not stored in the student table?  Not everyone has access to DDE or the skill level to use it.  This would also apply to searching lunch data since it is also being stored in special programs.
Thanks,

I correct myself, lunch data is not stored in special programs.  Only the sped data.

Does anyone have a process that auto-triggers an attendance email after a
specific number of absences, preferably listing the classes?

Our dean of students is looking for an easier way to notify parents when a student has been absent 6 or more times for a course, and then again at 10 or more times.

Right now, she can run a report (PSCB Custom Report > Meeting Attendance - Search by Frequency) to see the names and classes missed. From there, she can use the Multi-Select feature to pull the student names, use the Build Email List customization and send a generic email about attendance to the parent/guardian.

She wants an easier process that will allow her to list the classes missed in the email.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. We have School Messenger but after talking with my co-worker who manages that, I don't think that's an option.

Thanks!

We don't have a totally automated way, but we've setup a way that doesn't take much work. It uses the special search function, attendancepoints. for your attendance level of 6, you would search *attendancepoints > =6. This requires all the attendance codes you want counted to have their Attendance Points set to 1. A custom field would need to be created to contain the date the 6th absence email was sent. You can create a stored search for each level, ex:

*attendancepoints > =6
Attendance_email_6 =

This would find all students who have 6 or more absences in a period and has not received an email for the 6th level. After the email is sent to these students, you would use the Student Field Value to enter the date into Attendance_email_6. 

This would find students the first time they reach 6 absences in any period, so it would not find students when they reach 6 absences in each period.

You would do the same for the other levels, such as 10.
