Each morning or afternoon the classroom teachers will take the roll for their class. Administrators can check progress on this by visiting the 'Admin Daily Roll' page using the big tick at the top of the LINC-ED page.
On this page you will see:
The date that you are working on (this will default to today but you can change this to see previous or future dates). The period of the day (am or pm)
A series of buttons for each class in the school. These will be either blue or green. Green buttons indicated that the roll has been completed for this class. Clicking these buttons will give you quick access to complete the roll for that class for the teacher if required.
Once all the buttons have turned green you will see two additional buttons for print out emergency lists of absent students.
A list of all the students you have not been given an absence code.
This list may be in the form of a table or a grid of photos- you can change the format of your list by going to the school options page (Admin-->Menu-->School Options)
Grid of photos
Click on a photo to see the contact details for that student. Click on the 'Unknown' button to select the appropriate code. The photo will then move down to the 'Code Given' section.
List of absences
This table can be sorted by clicking on the headings of any column.
Each row of the table will show you the student, their class, their contact details, quick allocation codes, more codes and a notes section.
Once you have selected a code, the row will be removed and the student added to the 'Code Given' section.
SMS Text messaging caregivers
If your school has turned on the SMS messaging service you will see a button to send a text message to all unknown absences. Once all known absences have been accounted for you can select this button to send a text message to all the nominated caregivers for each student still marked as unknown.
