  1. Attendance & Reward

    We are Americans who are a non-profit and have a school for squatter children in the slums of the Philippines and would like to create student attendance database that provides various rewards. Our goal is to encourage the kids to attend school who otherwise wouldn't and provide them with a reward point type of system. Each day they attend school, they get 5pts. If they remembered to wear their school uniform they get additional 5 pts. At the end of the day or the end of the week, they can use their points and trade them in for rice, milk, things that will help them feed their family, get school supplies etc. We would like to account for how often they come to track their daily attendance. We are hoping to include other fields that would be helpful to medical assistance, needs, etc. As of now, we print and laminte, cutout little paper coins we give them and it is a lot of work. We have around 400-600 kids who attend class. Annually we have several large community events where we track the daily attendance during summer of up to 3,000 students who attend. This is all done by hand so a digital type system would really benefit, save time, manpower, and streamline what we are doing. To Summarize: - track attendance - reward attendance and such by point system - can use their student card points at cafeteria for snacks or for extra stuff as incentive to help their families. If you know of something that would help us, or have some ideas, please let us know. ~ Mark
