What does the Imperfect Class Attendance status mean?

Imperfect Class Attendance is a master attendance status that sometimes appears for students who have both Master and Class Attendance taken at their school. It's primarily meant to serve as a flag for the front desk staff letting them know that something about this student's class attendance needs some attention.

This attendance detail indicates that this student has a master attendance status of "Imperfect Class Attendance". 

Imperfect Class Attendance occurs when there is a dicrepency between the master attendance status and one or more class atendance statuses. The two common ways this occurs are if a student:

  • has a master attendance status of some variety of "Absent", but their class attendance statuses do not reflect the master attendance statuses. This commonly presents itself as a student who was late to school and missed the block in which master attendance is taken.
  • has a master attendance status of "Present", but their class attendance statuses do not reflect the master attendance status, either because of an attendance error, or because something unusual is going on with the student's attendance that particular day (e.g. they skipped one of their classes).
