Jackrabbit Tips & Tricks

Pros & Cons of Using Bar Code and QR Codes for Recording Attendance

It is important to be educated about the pluses and the benefits and nicks associated with using this new technology before making the changes they require.

Pros Cons
Quicker and more accurate attendance records Forces switch from “tracking absences/makeups” to “tracking attendance”
Less hectic front office Eliminates absences and make-ups functionality
More face-time with parents and students
Less staff time spent on attendance
Helps in going paperless


While the comparison may at first to appear to clearly favor the Pros, you should note that the Cons are sometimes deal breakers because of the limits they place on some of the more popular Jackrabbit attendance features.

Each facility must weigh the impact of the Pros and Cons to their processes and go into changes with eyes wide open.
