If you’re using My School Books payroll feature for your multi-teacher school, the attendance will affect the payroll entries. Billable events always create payroll entries; non-billable events do not. The easy way to remember this is that if the school makes money, the teacher makes money too.

Here are a few examples:

  • If a student is marked “Present ($)” for a lesson, then the teacher will have a payroll entry created for that account.
  • If a student is marked “Absent, Notice Given“, then this lesson is not billable, and no payroll entry is created.
  • If a student is marked “Absent, Make-Up ($)“, then the lesson is billed and a payroll entry is created. When the make-up lesson is taught, the make-up lesson is not billable (since it was paid for when the make-up credit was issued), and no payroll entry is created.
