A No Show student is one who was pre-registered before the start of the school year, then for what ever reason does not start the school year at the intended school. No show an enrolled student that no longer plans to attend in the fall. Withdraw the student using the same exit date as the entry date. On occasion this may happen during the school year, but please take every precaution NOT to enter the student into PowerSchool until the day they show up to attend class. It is no longer necessary to send the SIS technician the student number so the enrollment can be removed. The SIS technician can search for these records and remove them in mass if necessary. This is only done for students that do not have a previous enrollment within our school system and haven't been assigned a STI (State Testing Identifier).
Example: A preschooler that was enrolled over the summer, will not be attending in the fall.
The SIS Technician must delete the "No Show" enrollment records of the in-district transfer students.
The school must submit the 10 Day Enrollment Report. During the 10 days, the No Show Students are tracked and counted on a daily basis. The students are then watched further to determine if they then become No Show Students that never attended the beginning of school.
No Show Students must be cleaned up after the 10 Report period:
If a student has not shown up as of the 10th day of school and you do not know where they are you may remove their absences, and then withdrawal them as of (first day of school).
NOTE: All W8xx exit codes have to be followed up on ASAP so that you can figure out where these students are enrolled. Once you know where the student went, you'll need to change the W880 exit code and the No-Show exit comment to match the information you have on the student.
- Remove all absent attendance codes from the Attendance page
- Drop the student from all of their classes as of the first day of school
- Under Enrollment Functions, select Transfer Out of School
The Transferred Out student will now have a "No Show" record listed on the Transfer Info page.
When no showing students in PowerSchool, remember to blank out the entry code for that record. Any mass changes are done per request by the individual school.
From time to time, the EIMS system does not assign STI (Student Testing Identifiers) for students that were No Show at the beginning of the current school year.
If a student has NEVER attended WCS before, No Shows are not required to have an STI.
If a student has 0 present days for the entire year, they should be treated as a No Show student
