Better display School Attendance on a Specific Date

PCSchool has enhanced our Attendance/Enrolment functionality to better report on the students attending the school on any prior date. Scholastic Ver 2011-2.0.100   This Attendance Data is available in a variety of formats including year level, Ethnicity and Gender tables.

The report above is available at Download report for SQL and extract to \pcschool\reports\sql on the server

or Download for Non SQL  and extract to \pcschool\reports on the server

The report is launched via Absence and Behaviour Reports as below:

To further enhance attendance reporting PCSchool has added a selection to its very popular Tag Set to enable the user to select those students from the database who attended the school on a specific date. The year level selection for this can be based on the student’s year level on that date. Such a Tag Set could then be used to produce any of the PCSchool Standard Reports such as address labels or could be used to message (SMS) or email those students.
