How do I enter attendance for suspensions in Oklahoma?

This article explains how Oklahoma schools will enter attendance for students who are on out-of-school suspension to match the Oklahoma State Department of Education (OSDE) reporting requirements. Such students should be marked absent/excused throughout their out-of-school suspension. Schools may report half-day and full-day suspensions in accordance with the minutes per day guidelines issued by the state.

Before entering this attendance information, review your attendance codes to meet the OSDE suspension reporting criteria. Click here to read about how to add Oklahoma out-of-school suspension codes to SchoolInsight.

Schools that maintain both period attendance and daily attendance will need to enter the out-of-school suspension code for both period attendance and daily attendance. On the other hand, schools who maintain only daily attendance will only need to enter the out-of-school suspension code for daily attendance.

To enter period and/or daily attendance for an out-of-school suspension

  1. Goto Admin Main > Attendance > Daily Attendance
  2. More > Enter Future Attendance
  3. Find and locate the student
  4. Enter the student first and last day of suspension
  5. Select the Daily Attendance option
  6. Enter the daily out-of-school suspension code
    1. OSH - Half day out of school suspension
    2. OSF - Full day out of school suspension
  7. Select the Period Attendance option
  8. Enter the period attendance out-of-school suspension code
    1. OSH - Half day out of school suspension
    2. OSF - Full day out of school suspension
  9. Enter the Period Start time and Period End time
  10. Save

Note that when there are both half-day and full-day suspensions in a series of consecutive suspension days, the correct attendance code should be selected for each day or series of days.
