They supervise and provide surveillance over a group of students in a dormitory setting just before, during, and just after sleeping periods, assist students needing help with medical problems, sleeplessness, emotional distress, behavioral problems, etc.; provide quiet leisure activities for students who are awake, and record anecdotal and numerical information. Night Attendants may assist students with early morning preparations for school, supervise the dining rooms, monitor student performance of housekeeping tasks, keep routine records, prepare materials, or perform tasks which assist other staff with school activities and programs.
