Overview & Purpose
This technical manual will serve as a general guide for understanding the standard attendance setup, process, and calculations within Illuminate Education. This manual will provide information regarding ADA (Average Daily Attendance) and ADM (Average Daily Minutes) calculations and reporting. The intent is to depict what is possible within the Illuminate Student Information System. No specific setup tasks or reporting processes will be outlined in the following pages; rather, an overview of the various attendance options, calculations, and reporting methods will be discussed.
Since this manual will be used for general reference, all documentation needed to setup subsequently mentioned features can be found at our help site, help.illuminateed.com or by clicking here. Additionally, links to Help Documents for specific features will be provided under each header.
The material contained within this manual is intended for site and district staff who are or will be using Illuminate Student Information System to track and report Attendance.
Due to our inherent desire to improve, this documentation will be updated periodically to reflect the newest features available in Illuminate Student Information System. All new changes to the documentation will be tracked in the appendix of this manual for easy reference after a release.
