It is a legal requirement and the duty of the teacher to mark the roll each day at 9am and again at 2:30pm. Specialist teachers are responsible for marking the roll of their class. Attendance rolls may be used in court as evidence at any time and external auditors will undertake enrolment audits. The roll is marked electronically using COMPASS on any device. In the event that the roll cannot be marked electronically, paper rolls may be used and are located at the office. These must be marked electronically at a later stage by teachers or if necessary, office staff. CRTs will mark the paper roll and send it to the office for electronic marking.
When ongoing absences or regular absences are identified, class teachers should ensure that the Principal/Assistant Principal is informed and that appropriate action is taken.
Protocols for unexplained absences is currently under review.
