As an Admin you may be able to create Attendance Markings for your school. This is a permissions based task, if you do not see options and/or buttons mentioned in this documentation then you may need to contact an administrator for you account to ensure proper permissions are given. Teacher’s are unable to create Attendance Markings, an admin must create any attendance marking that may be needed for the school.
Sign in to your Admin ClassReach account.
Navigate to the Settings tab at the top of your screen.
Click Attendance Markings in the Classroom Settings window.
