Get your teachers set up for success by giving them the access they need in jmc Teacher. From jmc Office, choose how teachers enter classroom attendance, if they can view discipline referrals, how they take lunch counts for their homeroom, and control their access to Communication submissions all from one convenient place.

To get started, log in to jmc Office at the building level and head to File > Online Settings.

Step One: Click the "Teacher" tab to access all options available for teachers.

Step Two: Select the "By Schedule" or "By Advisor" radio button to control how student lists display in jmc Teacher for attendance entry:

  • By Schedule: students are grouped by course section based upon their schedule

  • By Advisor: students are grouped by homeroom advisor, regardless of schedule

Step Three: Place a checkmark(s) in the following checkbox(es) in the Classroom Attendance Entry (CAE) box to control what attendance events teachers will be allowed to report:

  • Allowed Absences: Excused: allow teachers to report an excused absence for a student

  • Allowed Absences: Unexcused: allow teachers to report an unexcused absence for a student

  • Allowed Tardies: Excused: allow teachers to report an excused tardy for a student

  • Allowed Tardies: Unexcused: allow teachers to report an unexcused tardy for a student

Step Four: Place a checkmark in the "Allow teachers to login" checkbox to allow access to jmc Teacher for the current school year.

Helpful Tip: Schools may choose to disallow access to jmc Teacher until student schedules are set to avoid questions from teachers about incomplete class rosters.

Fun Fact: Removing the checkmark from the "Display current grade percentages" checkbox will display the course grade without a percentage.

Step Eleven: Select how teachers view discipline referrals from the "Allow teachers to view discipline" drop-down list:

  • Don't view any discipline referrals: no discipline referral information will be available to teachers
