Illness Tracking Categories

Multiple illness tracking categories can be set up for each school to track illness absences. Each illness tracking category must be associated with the appropriate attendance code category. You must set up attendance code categories before proceeding. 

When a student is assigned illness attendance, a detail record is created in the database with the record type I, as well as a summary record with record type TI. There may be multiple detail records per day if the school uses meeting attendance.

Add an Illness Tracking Category

To add an illness tracking category, choose School under Setup in the main menu and then click Attendance Tracking and Notification. If all of the attendance code categories have been associated with an illness tracking category, you cannot add new illness tracking categories. You must edit or delete an existing record in order to create a new record.

  1. Click Illness Tracking Setup
  2. Click New.
  3. Select the Attendance CategoryAttendance code categories can only be used once. Any codes already used will not display. Note that if you track both tardies and unexcused absences, you must have separate attendance code categories for each. You must set up attendance code categories prior to configuring this parameter.
