When you track absences in Jackrabbit, and you allow your students to make up their missed classes, there are a few different ways to schedule a makeup.
One of these workflows is to schedule a makeup class from the Student record.
To schedule a makeup for a student, the student must have been marked absent, and the absence must have been marked as "Elligible for Makeup".
Schedule a Makeup from the Student Record
- Go to the Absences tab in the Student record.
- Click the Schedule Makeup link for the appropriate absence to open the Weekly Calendar. For organizations with different locations, click Change Criteria at the top of the calendar to customize the calendar view for all locations (leave blank) or select a different location.
- After locating a makeup class, hover over it to display the class information and click the Schedule Makeup button.
- You are returned to the Absences tab of the Student record which now shows the makeup class information.
If the Makeup Exp. Date has not passed, i.e., it is earlier than the current date, it can be edited to accommodate for longer outages. If needed you can extend the expiration date for multiple absences that occurred during a specific time frame.
