Welcome to the attendance/lunch count training in TAC.

00:00:03,600 --> 00:00:08,966
Along with this video, you can also access written directions on taking attendance 

3
00:00:08,966 --> 00:00:12,699
on Office 365 

4
00:00:12,700 --> 00:00:15,633
in the Technology site 

5
00:00:15,633 --> 00:00:22,699
home screen, to 

6
00:00:22,700 --> 00:00:27,900
CCPS documents, 

7
00:00:27,900 --> 00:00:34,966
to Teacher Access Center, to 

8
00:00:34,966 --> 00:00:37,999
For Teachers.

9
00:00:38,000 --> 00:00:39,733
For training purposes, 

10
00:00:39,733 --> 00:00:42,899
when logging into TAC you will want to be in the test database 

11
00:00:42,900 --> 00:00:45,533
instead of the live database.  

12
00:00:45,533 --> 00:00:54,799
In your live database you will not see the attendance icons until the first day of school.

13
00:00:54,800 --> 00:00:58,766
Attendance for MSDE purposes for elementary teachers will be done in Homeroom (Period 0). 

14
00:00:58,766 --> 00:01:05,066
Teachers are also required to keep attendance records for their other periods which can also be done in TAC.

15
00:01:05,066 --> 00:01:10,766
The first icon for any course is used to automatically mark all students present for each period.  

16
00:01:10,766 --> 00:01:17,266
The second icon is to take attendance for each period when not all students are present.

17
00:01:17,266 --> 00:01:22,899
To take attendance for homeroom choose the icon most appropriate.  

18
00:01:22,900 --> 00:01:32,900
When choosing the chair, mark students absent by clicking into the cell under the “A” column next to their name.  

19
00:01:32,900 --> 00:01:40,933
You do not need to mark students tardy or present as the front office attendance secretary will handle that.  

20
00:01:40,933 --> 00:01:44,566
Once finished click the save icon before exiting.

21
00:01:44,566 --> 00:01:55,599
To take attendance for you other periods, again choose the icon most appropriate.  

22
00:01:55,600 --> 00:02:03,933
When choosing the chair icon click on the “A” cell for any student absent or the “T” cell for any student that should receive 

23
00:02:03,933 --> 00:02:07,033
the “Tardy 01-05 min.” default code.  

24
00:02:07,033 --> 00:02:13,766
Never enter Dismissal or arrival times as that is handled by the front office attendance secretary.  

25
00:02:13,766 --> 00:02:21,666
If you wish to enter a different code (Not “A” or T” default) then make sure the “A and T” boxes are not checked, 

26
00:02:21,666 --> 00:02:26,299
but instead select an appropriate code to put in the code cell.  

27
00:02:26,300 --> 00:02:32,466
By clicking the magnifying glass in the code cell a drop down menu will appear with code option.  

28
00:02:32,466 --> 00:02:34,866
Click the one most appropriate.  

29
00:02:34,866 --> 00:02:38,732
Once done be sure to click the save icon before exiting.

30
00:02:38,733 --> 00:02:45,533
A note: your attendance can be viewed in photo layout by using the 

31
00:02:45,533 --> 00:02:47,466
toolbar attendance dropdown menu.  

32
00:02:47,466 --> 00:02:52,066
However the seating chart feature must be set up prior to using this layout.

33
00:02:52,066 --> 00:02:55,899
As a reminder, lunch count is taken using the apple icon.  

34
00:02:55,900 --> 00:03:03,100
Enter your numbers and then save.

35
00:03:03,100 --> 00:03:09,100
I hope that you have found this training helpful in getting you started taking attendance and lunch count.  

36
00:03:09,100 --> 00:03:13,933
Please remember you can always use the help tab to guide you 

37
00:03:13,933 --> 00:03:18,966
or ask your school based gradebook coordinator for help.
