Online school absentee tracking

Our Public Health Unit is looking at initiating an online school absenteeism tracking system next month. Each school in our catchment area would be asked to submit a daily report of the number of students who are absent (including those both due to illness and those due to other reasons).

Area schools are willing to provide this information as long as they can submit an online report daily before noon, rather than the former method of reporting by fax or telephone.

Have any other govloop members created such a surveillance tool for which they might be willing to share their coding ideas? Given the short time-lines, I’m hoping that I can use the old “beg, borrow & adapt” model of delivering this tool.

Thanking you for your consideration to this request in advance.
