Tardy Issuer

The tardy issuer allows schools to either allow students to define the period for which they are tardy, or simply use the features in the APX Administrator to link to a customized bell schedule. Additionally, it can provide schools with important information regarding the reason (s) why students are late. This information should be part of the student analytics, in order for administrators and school staff, to better understand conditions and situation outside of the control of students.

Clear Absence Form Printer

This module brings unprecedented efficiency to the absence clearance process, by utilizing a standard form that students take home for parents and/or guardians to sign.

Early Leave Permit Printer

The early leave permit printer provides schools with a kiosk based solution, that can be deployed in one or more locations within the school. Since the system captures reasons for the early leave, schools can now have an array of statistics not readily available from most SIS systems.

"Roughly 15 more minutes of school a day (or about an additional week of class over an academic year) relates to an average increase in overall academic achievement of about 1.0 percent, and a 1.5 percent increase in average achievement for disadvantaged students."
