From the Ministry

Where an instructional session has been cancelled (i.e. the teacher is unavailable) and the instructor is not paid, the session will not be recognized for funding purposes. Do not include this session in the total number of sessions recognized for funding. The unfunded cancelled session must be marked with a “D” on the register and the reason for the cancellation must be recorded. If the “D” session is rescheduled, the instructor should be paid for the rescheduled session and the rescheduled session must be included in the total number of sessions recognized for funding purposes.

Setup for Unfunded Cancelled Sessions

Create an Attendance Category named 'CEUNFUNDED'.

  • Any Attendance code associated with the Attendance Category 'CEUNFUNDED' will generate the 'D' attendance code.

  • As long as one student in the course has an attendance code associated with 'CEUNFUNDED' category, that day will not count towards sessions recognized.

Funded Cancelled Sessions - Setup remains the same:

  • The Attendance Category is named 'ConEd'

  • Any Attendance code associated with the Attendance Category 'ConEd' will generate the 'C' attendance code.

  • As long as one student in the course has an attendance code associated with 'ConEd' category, that day will count towards sessions recognized.

Code

The following categories must be created:

  • Tardy

  • Grant

  • Non-Instr

  • Contact

  • IndepStudy

  • ConEd

  • *CEUNFUNDED

*Used for unfunded, cancelled instructional sessions

Note: When counting consecutive absences, Attendance codes associated with CEUNFUNDED are ignored.

Entering Full-Time Equivalencies

Full-Time Equivalencies

Full-Time Equivalencies have no relationship to the FTEs that get reported to the Ministry. For Ontario, it was recommended to call this ‘Admission Status’ and name the full-time equivalency ‘Admitted’. In order to calculate attendance, students must be assigned a full-time equivalency (internal value is FTEID) and Attendance Conversions must to set up.

Admission Status (or Full-Time Equivalency)

This must be defined to calculate attendance. Every student must have a valid full-time equivalency (internal field for students is FTEID)

Elementary Progress Reports, Elementary Report Card, Secondary Report Card, Daily Attendance Record, OnSIS Submissions

Defining Attendance Conversions

Attendance Conversions

Attendance Conversions are tied to PowerSchool’s Full Time Equivalencies (FTE).

For AM and PM attendance, Period or Time conversions must be set up. Period is used to define the number of periods in which the student must be present/absent to receive the attendance value defined. Time is used to define how many minutes the student must be present to receive the attendance value defined.
