Help Track Student Learning Time

As you are aware, this year is very different than prior years, and school districts have new requirements we must report to the Arizona Department of Education due to the remote school online environment. Thus, we are requesting your help to supplement the student learning time reports. This includes time students are doing school work when not on teacher-led Zoom class meetings and homework. We understand times will be estimates, as we do not expect comprehensive tracking.

Please know a student's grades will not be negatively impacted if parent-entered time tracking is not completed. Our goal is to use all methods at our disposal to understand and encourage student engagement. Any contribution you can provide is much appreciated.

You can do this in Synergy ParentVUE (

  1. Time Tracking is available only through web browsers. It is currently not available through the mobile app. If you have a web browser (such as Chrome) on your smart phone or mobile device, you can log into ParentVUE through the browser on your device. Otherwise, please use a computer.
  2. In ParentVUE, click "Attendance" in the navigation list on the left
  3. Then click the "Time Tracker" link in the upper right of the screen

You should enter time when:

  • your student does work outside of teacher-led sessions (this includes homework and in-class project time)
  • your student is trying to connect to class Zoom sessions but is unable to do so because of technical issues

Please enter total minutes per class, per day, no matter when in the day your student did the work. For your convenience, there are two options:

  • minutes can be entered daily
  • the weekly total of minutes can be entered at the end of each week

Please do your best to enter and submit all applicable minutes for the first week of school. Even one entry helps a lot!

For detailed instructions, please see ParentVUE Time Tracking Instructions (in PDF).

ParentVUE Time Tracker: How to Enter & Submit Time for Your Child

Was your child unable to connect to a Zoom class?

If your child was unable to connect to a Zoom class for technical reasons, you can submit the time spent on the class using Time Tracker in ParentVUE.

Synchronous v. Asynchronous Learning

Your child’s teacher will be taking “synchronous” attendance when your child participates in Zoom class sessions. In the new remote learning environment, however, there are also opportunities for “asynchronous” learning that goes on outside of online student/teacher interaction. Your child’s time in this learning mode can be submitted using Time Tracker as well.

Tardy Codes

While any attendance code other than being marked present in a Zoom class  session will display as 'tardy', this has no negative effect on a student's attendance record during remote learning.

Please see Time Tracking in ParentVUE for details on how to enter and submit time.

Translations: Arabic | Somali | Spanish | SwahiliVietnamese

IMPORTANT: Time Tracker can be used in either the ParentVUE web application or the ParentVUE mobile app. Time Tracker will not work in the web application if your are using the Internet Explorer browser.
