Teacher Access Center Setup

Teacher Access Building Configuration

Menu path: From the Administration menu, choose TAC Setup, choose Setup, and then select TAC Building Configuration.

Teacher Access Center provides the option to lock attendance so teachers cannot update attendance after submission. If you lock attendance, teachers must notify the building attendance office if corrections are necessary.

You can lock attendance for all periods or the official attendance periods.
