Stop using manual processes or cumbersome Google Sheets to monitor students who are late to class. Centralizing your tardy management system allows teachers to record late attendance efficiently, decreasing distractions and increasing valuable learning time in the classroom.

How to use Minga’s Behavior & Rewards Module for tardy management:

This helps to easily signal to late students that they will not be checked into class until they’re marked as tardy.

Create a centralized area outside of the classroom for tardy check-ins.

Students will use their digital student ID to check in, which will mark them as tardy, automatically assign a hall pass to the student, and reconcile the tardy in your SIS.

Students can then return to class and show their hall pass to anyone who is monitoring the hallway or the teacher to confirm that they have checked in.

Alternatively, take attendance in class using your SIS and export the data to Minga.

Increased efficiency, decreased admin burden

Automatic Detentions for Students Who are Consistently Tardy

Dealing with repeat latecomers? Successfully discipline students who continually arrive late to class. Automatic tardy consequences remove the need for manual monitoring through spreadsheets.

Minga’s automation tools allow you to preset consequences based on tardy frequency, such as automatic lunchtime detentions. This consistent approach to consequences reinforces your school’s attendance expectations and frees up staff to focus on more important tasks.

How to use Minga’s Behavior & Rewards Module to automate tardy consequences:


For instance, if Sally receives 3 tardies and the detention threshold is 2 tardies, she would be assigned detention.

Behavior and consequences automation

Minga Owners and Managers develop a behavior and consequences automation protocol.

Automation framework

The protocol comprises a combination of the outcome, the behaviors that contribute to that outcome, and the number of behaviors required to trigger the outcome.

Consequences serve date

Lastly, administrators can specify a timeframe within which the consequence must be served, ensuring timely resolution.
