take attendance

A teacher can take attendance from any class, even if he does not belong to this class. Is this right? I understand that he should only have access to the classes he is enrolled in. Is my understanding correct?

Thanks, Alessandra

Hi Alessandra. Yes, Gibbon is based on school values where teachers collaborate and support each other, and as such, many areas like attendance, class lists and planning are open to other teachers by default. For attendance, this particularly facilitates a teacher covering another teacher’s class if a teacher is away, in which case they would need to take attendance for them. Attendance is all logged with the users name and time, so there is little benefit in a teacher taking attendance for another teacher unless they are assisting them. Hope this helps.
