PCSchool has modified the options available to teachers in Absence Roll Marking as follows:
1. If the student is currently ‘NM – Not Marked’ the teacher can select any available status from the list including ‘? – Unexplained’.
2. If the student is currently ‘? – Unexplained’ the teacher can select any available status.
3. If the student currently has a status other than NM or ? (eg Late to class, Sick, Present, Excursion etc) the teacher cannot change it to ‘? – Unexplained’.
The reason for this is so that classroom teachers cannot change an explained absence (possibly entered in by the office) to unexplained.
