Barcode Attendance

We are wanting to pilot a system where we scan students ID cards as they enter the classroom for attendance. Is there an option in eSchool where it can take attendance that way?

Re: Barcode Attendance

I've had some inquiries too.  I don't think so, as that would boil down to positive attendance, while eSP is negative attendance (marking students absent instead of present).

I guess you could always scan the barcodes to an external list (Excel, etc), and then compare the list to TAC roster, but that's an error prone extra step.
