    Hello,

    I don't think this task involves much programming. You can create tables and
    then create forms for teachers to enter information and then queries to run
    reports to obtain usefull information.
    Ex. in your table you could have student,penalty,date,check box for if
    executed, field for notes,etc..
    and many other features can be added depending on what you really need done.
    This is a forum for Access which is a database program from Microsoft and
    this program could create what you need. Do you know how to use Access?

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
