If your Jackrabbit database is set to track absences you have the option of offering makeups for missed classes.
There are several settings that control a parent's ability to schedule absences and makeups in the Parent Portal.
|Makeup Settings||Define how eligibility for makeups is determined and whether or not there is a time limit on when makeups are offered.|
|Tools menu > Parent Portal > Settings||Select the Show Student Absences/Attendance check box, in the Family Information Settings, to add an Absences or Attendance tab in the student record within the portal.|
|Parent Portal Absence & Makeup Settings||Control whether parents can schedule absences in the Parent Portal, define a scheduling window, and choose which past absences will display.|
Will you allow your parents to schedule makeups? If so, determine which classes display for makeup selection. Define when makeups can be scheduled and if they can be canceled.
|Family record > Contact record > Portal Information||Control a contact's ability to manage absences and makeups in the parent portal.|
This setting will default to selected (= yes) when you opt to allow parents to schedule absences &/or makeups in the Parent Portal Absence & Makeup Settings. Clear the checkbox to remove the ability for a specific contact.
