Attendance: Ability to set unique attendance types for divisions (Lower, Middle, Upper)

Our lower school's default attendance of Absent, Tardy is always Excused because they are with parents. Our high school default attendance of Absent, Tardy is always Unexcused until they provide documentation or the parent calls.  There should be the ability to attach the default attendance type to the grade level so reporting is accurate.

    We are beginning some discovery around revamping the entire Attendance Setup experience and hope to include this functionality as part of that work.

    We would love your input on the overall revamp as well as how the school level controls should tie in. If you are interested, please follow this link to schedule some time with me and my team:

    If you have any questions or are unable to find a time in the scheduler that works for you, please feel free to reach out directly:

    Thank you!

    I have asked for this for years. Also need to be able to hide the "absent - no excuse" if not used. Have been told it's hard-wired in and can't be changed. At least let me put it at the bottom of the list so teachers don't accidentally choose it. I had an idea at one time in here about this but can no longer find it.
