 +__PowerTeacher__: ​ Please let teachers know to follow the instructions below when taking attendance for a class that spans across multiple periods.
 +1. After logging into PowerTeacher go to the Record Meeting Attendance page for the first period of the class and mark the absence, tardy, or early dismissal. Then click Submit.
 +2. Next, if a period selection (below) is available, change it to the next period of the same class and click submit (without marking attendance). ​ This will allow them to see the green dot indicating that they have taken attendance for that class. ​ It also allows the attendance clerk to see the green box indicating that the teacher has taken attendance when looking at the "​Teacher Attendance Submission Status"​ page.
