Take Attendance

There are three ways to mark or change an attendance record in PowerSchool SIS and Schoology:

  • Mark or change a single attendance instance.
  • Mark or change a student's attendance records for blocks of time. This is particularly useful when the student has been or will be out for an extended period.
  • Mark or change a group of student's attendance records for blocks of time. This is particularly useful when a class goes on a field trip or for sporting events.

Use any or all of the methods either to change a record from the past where a code has already been entered or to enter new data for an unmarked date range, day, or period in the past or future.

Schoology Integration

Schoology and PowerSchool SIS offer an integration that enables instructors to take attendance in Schoology using PowerSchool SIS Attendance tools. Instead of taking attendance using different sets of tools, teachers can usthe same attendance tools they have access to in PowerSchool, all within Schoology courses. This means a deeper and more streamlined experience for instructors so that PowerSchool SIS and Schoology work better together. For more information on taking attendance in Schoology, see Using PowerSchool SIS Attendance with Schoology.
