Section Attendance Status



The Section Attendance Status reports all sections in a school that have not taken attendance for a particular day. It is a means to track and verify that initial attendance for a section has been taken on the calendar day of the school day for which the attendance occurred. Attendance auditing must be enabled. This is a school level report.


    • For sections spanning multiple periods, each period is evaluated separately.
    • For sections using interval attendance, each interval is evaluated separately.
    • Attendance taken in PowerTeacher without a PowerSchool User ID will appear on the report.

Section Enrollment Selection

The report selects records from the [CC] table based on the following criteria:

  • The section enrollment must be associated with a school included in the report.
  • The section must not be excluded from state reporting
  • The course must not be excluded from state reporting
  • The section enrollment must begin on or before the report end date.
  • The section enrollment must end after the report start date.
