Allow all teachers to take attendance for courses

I would like all teachers to be able to take attendance for their classes, not just the teacher designated as the Head teacher. We use Associate Teachers in K-2, and would like for all our teachers to be able to take attendance.

    We have some combined classes that have multiple teachers.  It would be great if any of the teachers could take attendance.

    We would LOVE to have this ability. Tied to a role so you could give it to some people but not others. All if you wanted.

    This is a real issue for our homerooms as there are multiple teachers. Please add the ability for all teachers enrolled in a course to take the attendance.

    We have addressed this by creating a fake teacher called "TOC" (teacher on call or substitute teacher) which has been added as a second teacher on all sections.  This is the only way we have figured out that subs can take attendance.

    This would also be useful for Nurses, Academics Director, Admissions Office personnel, Psychologist or Therapist who might have to hold the kid in their offices for one reason or another. I like the temporary solution though. Better than sending a message to each teacher.

    One solution would be to add them as additional teachers to those courses, but leave the Head teacher alone.  You can use "Enroll Group" to add them all fairly quickly to all the classes at once.  You can even create an "Associate Teacher" Personnel Type if you want to be clear that they aren't the main teacher.
