When you track absences in Jackrabbit, you'll have the option of offering your students the ability to make up their missed classes.
To define the settings that control makeups, go to the Tools menu > Edit Settings > Organization Defaults (left menu) > Makeup Settings section.
Eligibility for Absences
Define how a student's eligibility to make up a class is assessed when an absence is recorded.
It's a common policy that students must make up a class within a certain time frame (such as 2 months). Save time and effort by setting the eligibility for all makeups to expire automatically after a designated time frame.
There are three options for setting expiration dates:
When the current date is later than the makeup expiration date, eligibility is marked as expired, and a makeup class cannot be scheduled.
Before the eligibility has expired, a makeup expiration date can be edited to extend the date to accommodate for special situations, such as an extended illness. Optionally, update the makeup expiration dates for multiple absences during a specified time frame.
Class Makeup Group Size Limit
Select the number of extra spots you will allow in a class for makeups. If you don't want makeups to exceed the class maximum number of students set this to zero (0).
