Mark a Student Present for Class (when tracking attendance)

When you track attendance in Jackrabbit, versus tracking absences, you will enter the days a student was present in class.

To accommodate different workflows, Jackrabbit offers several ways to record a student's attendance.

Enter attendance from the Class record
  • In the Class record, attendance is recorded using the Enter Attendance button.
Enter attendance in the Staff Portal
  • Staff can take attendance in the Staff Portal and mark students as present for class.
Use a barcode scanner to enter attendance
  • Barcode readers allow students to scan a card with a barcode to record attendance date and time.
Allow parents to schedule absences in the Parent Portal
  • Allow parents to enter absences for their students through their Parent Portals.
