Lesson Plans Configuration for School Days

You can now configure school days under “Edit Overall Settings”:

Configure School Days from "Edit Overall Setttings"

However, this new setting is currently only being used for the Subject-Based Lesson Plans module (currently in Beta). We’ll be extending the configuration for other modules soon.

Here’s an example with School Days set to only Saturday and Sunday:

When viewing the Attendance tab for students, there is now an option to view / download a PDF of the student’s current attendance record:
