I'm a school social worker/attendance counsellor. I have a very big roster of students at my high school.
It is very cumbersome for me to check on all of my attendance-problem students every day, to see if they came to school or not. Is there a way to set up Powerschool, to notify me by email or some sort of flag in PS, if a student is present on a given day?
Attendance Tracking and Notification can be used in combination with the basic PowerSchool attendance setup. The additional setup elements allow for tracking of truant attendance using a combination of thresholds and triggers. Each time a student meets or exceeds a specific threshold, a notification record is created in the PowerSchool database. The notification records can be used to print attendance letters for students with truant attendance.
