With upcoming School Improvement Days scheduled for April 12th and May 8th, it is important to remember to follow the rules when setting up half-day bell schedule in SIM. At the high school level, attendance is calculated by the number of minutes a student attains in each period he/she is marked 'Present'. Half Day attendance is calculated according to the state standards below:
- 180 minutes = Present
- 150-179 minutes = 1/2 Day
- 149 minutes and below = AUFD
Assure that the instructional minutes in your bell schedules are accurate. Student attendance is based upon the instructional minutes recorded on the Details page of a bell schedule. If your school is using a special bell schedule please submit a bell schedule change request to the IMPACT SIM Configuration mailbox at firstname.lastname@example.org.
