Track Attendance, Meals and More

Did you know you can track remote, onsite, and blended attendance inside COPA? To help agencies stay organized during the pandemic, we added a few new features to COPA Attendance.

The comprehensive functionality lets you track type of attendance – including onsite, remote, and blended learning. When taking attendance, a temperature check and health screening questions can now be made mandatory.

There are several different ways to take attendance. Using the CardScan module, or by filtering down to site and classroom in the Agency tab. From there you have options to take attendance, create calendar events, plan lessons, maintain daily and weekly sign-in/out, and manage volunteers.

Here’s what you can do within each area.


  • Track different types of attendance, including remote, on-site, and blended
  • Manage meals for children, staff, and volunteers
  • Monitor temperature checks and health screenings
  • View and update absentee list with absence reasons, follow-ups, comments and case notes
  • Daily and weekly electronic sign-in/out for children, staff and volunteers
  • Comprehensive Reports


  • Manage projects, appointments, health checks and screenings, with built-in calendar
