Trusted for overall simplicity

"I don't think you can look a parent in the eye and say 'we are doing everything we can' if you don't have [Orah] on your campus. There is no better way to keep track of students on-and-off campus in our modern age."
Andrew Wright

Mark Attendance, fast

Whatever the situation, with Orah Roll Checks you can take attendance from anywhere.

Mark the roll from the Orah app on your smartphone or desktop, or using the Orah Roll Checks Chrome Extension. Collaborate on a school-wide roll check with multiple staff members, allow substitute teachers to take the roll on your behalf or set up an automated roll to capture attendance as students sign in to specific locations.

Automate Attendance with NFC Checkpoints & iPad Kiosks

Make it easier for parents to keep the school updated. You can add parents as associated contacts for their student, and allow them to request student leave or notify the school that their child will be absent.

Manage attendance records in one place

You can set certain Pass Types like 'Absences' to automatically update in the system–so that teachers are aware in real-time that a student is not expected in class.

For Pass Types that require approval, you can manage these requests in one place and request additional information as needed.

Sync class schedules and attendance records with your student information system

Manage attendance in Orah, and keep your student information system updated. Teachers will be able to quickly take the roll for their assigned classes using the Chrome Extension, mobile or desktop app.

Gating & Restrictions

Enforce disciplinary action by “Gating” students to restrict them from being able to request leave or sign out for a chosen period of time.

Automate Attendance

Automate attendance for classes, meals or activities by allowing students to "check-in" to classes using Near-Field Communication technology.
