What is it?
The Truancy Tracker website was created at the request of the District Truancy Officer. The purpose is to provide a running list of students who are in need of attendance supports which can be reviewed at a school-by-school or district level. Data entry fields are provided to record the dates various supports and/or interventions were implemented. In addition there are areas to record comments or additional notes.
You need a truancy tracker account to log in to the website. If you are an authorized user (you are a principal, or your principal has assigned you data entry tasks) and are experiencing difficulty logging in, please firstname.lastname@example.org. You account setup and building assignment will be verified and you will be provided additional assistance.
Note: The address http://truancy.vvsd.org and shortcuts only work within Valley View's private network. If you are out of district, the site is accessible through VVSD Cloud Access ( http://accesstogo.vvsd.org ) Once logged in to cloud, start up the cloud version of Internet Explorer and type in http://truancy.vvsd.orgin the address bar.
To add a student to the list, click the Add Student button.
The Switch Schools button is used only by administrators who need to access multiple schools.
Click the blue underlined student name to begin entering information about the student.
Click in a field to activate the data entry form.
For fields requiring a date, either type in a date (mm/dd/yyyy) or click the calendar icon on the right side of the field for a pop up calendar. Click a date on the calendar and it puts the date in the field.
Click the Save button often to make sure the entries are recorded on the server.
Adding a Student
You see this screen after clicking the Add Student button on the main list view screen.
There is no way to delete a student from the website. If a record is entered in error or as a test submission, then type "Delete this record" in the comments field. The truancy officer will know to disregard that record. Periodically, the commented records will be removed by the system administrator.
Click the Log Out button on the main list view screen to end your session. Your session will automatically be logged out after 30 minutes of inactivity.
