Note: As of July 9, 2018, Blackbaud's School Management solutions (which include Core, onBoard, onCampus, onMessage, and onRecord) are utilizing a new top level navigation. This primarily affects users performing administrative tasks-constituent navigation for most parents, students, faculty, and alumni will remain the same. We appreciate your patience as we work to update our documentation. If you are seeing this message, the content of this solution is still being vetted for possible updates. Please refer to this mapping document if you need assistance finding a task in the new navigation.
When a teacher views a student's grade/assignment through the Gradebook, they see an [A] for Absent indicator, even if the student was only marked as Tardy (not Absent).
Because Tardy is coded as an Absent marker in the Gradebook, as the student has missed a portion of the class being Tardy, the Gradebook will show as Absent. If the teacher clicks to view details, they'll be able to see the Tardy attendance.
