AzEDS Student Attendance publishing is updated to include Learning Modality transactions when student attendance records are generated as part of publishing.

  • Learning Modality transactions are published as part of Student Attendance
  • At least one Learning Modality record will be published for students meeting the below criteria:
    • The student is enrolled in a Special Program designated as a ‘Distance Learning’ special program (on the Special Program setup screen at District Office), and
    • The student either has at least one Distance Learning attendance code for the day, or
    • The student is enrolled in a class where the class meets in a Bell Schedule period flagged as ‘Remote’ for the DL program the student is enrolled in for the day.
  • For every day meeting the above criteria, AzEDS publishing will send either an ‘In Attendance - DL’ record, an ‘Absence - DL’ record, or both records, depending on the student’s presence and absence status on the date of distance learning.
    • If the student was absent for any portion of the day, an ‘Excused’ or ‘Unexcused’ transaction is also published.
  • Note: Currently AzEDS publishing is updated to only support full-day Distance Learning students. Support for partial day Distance Learning students will be implemented in a future state reporting update.
