Launched Friday March 23, 2018, the new Child Care Dashboard is the default view for a Child Care Site from the Administrative side (Please note: The new Dashboard will only display for Sites using the iPad Attendance app when there has been data that has been synchronized with the Admin side or when attendance has been added manually to contracts for that Site). There is also a new system Dashboard icon (replaces the house/home icon).
When updated to the latest version and on devices running iOS 10 or higher, the Child Care iPad Attendance app will also show the new Dashboard as the default view (replaces the previous Home screen).
The Child Care Dashboard now displays:
- New contracts that are starting soon
- Upcoming schedule changes
Schedule changes will show for all sections within 7 days of the current day
Swipe left or right to move between days
- Total count of students currently signed in on the iPad Child Care Attendance app
- Trends for busy attendance periods

Child Care Attendance Statistics Report
To view attendance statistics for the site or site sections, you can now run the Child Care Attendance Statistics report for a Child Care Site or the Child Care Site Section list view. The report includes the minimum number of students, maximum number of students, average (the average number of students attending during that same time interval for that day of the week and for the time period displayed on the report) and median (the middle value for that same time interval).
There is also a column Currently Attending in the Contracts list view that reflects students that are currently signed in on the app. It will display a check mark if they are signed in and an X if they are not signed in/have been signed out.
If the attendance is fairly consistent, the average and median numbers will be similar. If there are inconsistencies (a higher maximum), the numbers could be different (a higher average and higher median).
