You can list staff available to cover each absence, and when they’ve been allocated print cover slips, or email or text staff to let them know the arrangements. It also means you can add permanent and supply teachers to the booking calendar, record staff absence in a calendar view and store everyone’s contact details.
By setting lists of reasons for absence you can analyse them, and suspend lessons from the timetable to make staff available for cover, using a weighting system to create prioritised lists.
The module also allows you to publish teacher timetables and cover arrangements directly, so teaching staff can view them, and use RSS and XML feeds to display them on other systems. There’s also a useful Master Cover Timetable to show all arranged cover for either single or blocks of days, which you can customise to your exact needs.
