Release Note

PSSR-209284ATN Update - Indexing Added for Performance

Attendance Tracking & Notification functionality tables have indexing added to increase performance and to fix an intermittent issue where the Refresh Attendance Tracking Data report takes hours to run and can fill up TEMP datafiles.

PSSR-243300New – Attendance Pref to Prevent Use of Blank Present Code in PowerTeacher

A new Attendance Pref has been added that will prevent the Attendance page in PowerTeacher from being submitted if any students have a blank attendance code. This pref can be enabled/disabled by the school and is intended to be utilized by schools and districts that must record non-blank attendance for each student, for each day/period meeting.

This new setting can be found at the following path:

  • Start Page> School Setup> Attendance Preferences> Prevent page submit if blank attendance is used (PowerTeacher)
    • The setting is disabled by default.
If you have schools with sections where multiple teachers are taking attendance, PowerSchool recommends that you keep the setting disabled due to the page submit being disabled until every student in the section has been assigned a non-blank attendance code.
