Student Settings

Student Age Format 

This setting allows you to choose how you'd like to display student ages in many areas of Jackrabbit. Display Year Only will display the student's age in years only, eg. 10. Display Year and Month will display the student's age in years and months, eg. 10 yrs, 2 mths.

Custom Grade Levels

Jackrabbit provides a listing of standard grade level fields; however it is possible to create custom grade levels. When this Custom Grade Levels is set to Yes you will be able to define custom grade levels to assign to your students. To define your custom grade levels go to the Tools menu > Edit Settings and select Drop-down Lists from the left menu. In the Student section you will see Grade Levels.

The Update Grade Level choice is not visible in the Tools menu unless the Custom Grade Level settings = Yes in Tools > Edit Settings > Student Settings.

Eligible for Makeup when Absent

When a student is absent, this setting determines when you will be prompted for their eligibility to do a makeup class. 

  • If you have several rules regarding makeup eligibility and each absence must be assessed individually, use the Select with Each Absence setting. 
  • If you always allow your students to makeup a missed class, set this to Always Allow Makeups to have the Eligible checkbox default to checked for every absence. 
  • If you do not allow your students to makeup classes, setting this to Never Allow Makeups will hide the Eligible checkbox completely.

Hide Citizenship

When set to Yes, the Citizenship field is hidden on the Student's Summary tab.
