Information on Talos for Attendance is uploaded daily from the DOE’s ATS system. This includes all students’ daily scan-in time on the right-hand side of the screen as well as period attendance viewable under on the calendar upon clicking the “Attendance” tab. Clicking a calendar date brings up daily attendance for each class as it appears in ATS. If a reconciliation form is filed with the Attendance Office, which is entered into ATS; the corrected attendance data will upload on the next sync between Talos and ATS, which occurs each weekday. As of this date, there are no discrepancies between Talos and ATS attendance data according to sync reports. Therefore, if a reconciliation form is filed, Talos should be checked the following afternoon for the corrected data. No system can pull/push information from ATS automatically. A manual sync is done daily as was done with eSchoolData in the past.
If a student is absent/late or needs to leave early – fill out the forms!!
Absence/Late Excuse Form If your child is absent or late, they will need to bring this signed form when they return to school from you, which must also be signed by each classroom teacher. The student must bring the completed form to the Attendance Office in Room 203. The form can be found on the school website, www.stuy.edu under the heading, “Parents” then clicking “Forms.”
Early Excuse Form If you know in advance that your child needs to leave school early, your child needs to turn in this form to the attendance office the day of their planned departure. The form is found on the same page as the Absence form on the school website.
