Spider – Student Attendance Codes are Sensitive to Caregiver

Available in Spider Version 2013.03.15.xxx and above.

PCSchool Spider is now sensitive to which absence records to be shown to care givers. Only those absences that are considered an ‘absence’ will be displayed to caregivers.Attendancecodes_xml

This feature has been implemented so that parents only see ‘true’ absences, as a student may be on a ‘school based activity’ – absent from the school campus, but still attending school for the day) and caregivers may find these codes misleading.

This change is controlled by a key in the Spider Configuration File which says “CAREGIVER_ABSENCESTATUS_FILTER”. If this is true, then only the above logic of filtering is applied.
