The Attendance Configuration needs to be rolled over to the new school year. As part of the End of School Year Procedures and preparation for the new school year you have to Rollover Attendance. This copies over your Attendance Configuration data to the next year.
Go to Administration > End of Year Procedures; Select Rollover Attendance; Set Source Academic Year = Previous School Year; Destination Academic Year = New School Year; and Set Override if Exists = Yes. Your School Attendance Parameters are not Academic Year specific and do not need to be rolled over.
