As an admin, you may at times need to change the attendance type of students that were marked as absent, to cut. Some teachers may think a student was just absent from school, while really they cut class. In addition, not all schools allow their teachers to mark students as cut, even if they are aware that the student cut class. So, it may be up to the admin to do so.
On the admin Settings page, in the General Settings box, select 'Absent Students.' First, click in the label next to the calendar icon, and select the date the student had cut class.
The student, or students, marked as absent on that day will show up in the 'Students Marked as Absent/Cut' box. You will see the student's name, period, and scheduled course they were marked absent for. To change a student that had been marked as absent to cut, check the 'Student Cut' box by their name. The student's attendance type is now set to cut.
