Get all of your teachers set up for the school year by setting their jmc Teacher online settings through jmc Office. Choose how teachers will enter their classroom attendance, if they can view discipline referrals, how they will 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 affecting which information is available to 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 the teacher gradebook for the current school year.

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

Step Five: Place a checkmark in the "Allow teachers to enter reasons" checkbox to let teachers enter absence and tardy reasons for a student's attendance.

Step Six: Place a checkmark in the "Allow teachers to use Message Center" checkbox to allow teachers access to the Message Center for communication with students and their contacts.

Step Seven: Place a checkmark in the "Display current grade percentage on Teacher, Family and Student" checkbox to display the current grade and percentage for each student's progress in jmc Teacher, jmc Family, and jmc Student.

Helpful Tip: If you uncheck the "Display current grade percentage on Teacher, Family and Student" checkbox then the student's current grade will be displayed without a percentage.

Step Eight: 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

  • View only discipline referrals they have submitted: Teachers will only see referrals they themselves created

  • View discipline referrals for students in their classes: Teachers will see referrals they themselves created and any referrals for students in their classes created by other teachers

  • View discipline referrals for all students: Teachers will see any discipline referrals for any student in the school.

Step Nine: Place a checkmark in the "Allow teachers to access Discipline Summary" to give teachers access to the discipline summary report.

Step Ten: Place a checkmark in the "Restrict CAE Submissions to Current Date" checkbox allow teacher attendance reporting for the current date only, avoiding teachers accidentally taking attendance for a future date.


Step Eleven: Set the number of lunch counts teachers should take in their class from the "Number of Counts" drop-down list.

Step Twelve: Define the lunch count names in the corresponding fields to help teachers distinguish between multiple lunch counts.

Helpful Tip: An example of setting 4 lunch counts for teachers could be "Hot Lunch", "Cold Lunch", "Milks", and "Cookies".

Step Thirteen: Place a checkmark in the "Allow teachers to select 'All Students' on Homeroom Reports" checkbox to let teachers select any student in the building when running homeroom reports.

Step Fourteen: Place a checkmark in the "Allow teachers to view all accepted student communication submissions" checkbox to let teachers view submitted information from the Communication modules.

Step Fifteen: Place a checkmark in the "Allow teachers to use Flex Schedules" checkbox to allow teachers to set up offerings for students in the flex schedule time slots.

Step Sixteen: Click the "Save" button to update any changes to the jmc Teacher settings.
