has a whole new user interface with new features using a modern design.
Changes include the ability to quickly change classes and add new courses.
The new "Edit Mode" allows for adding, deleting and changing
courses and sections very quickly. All sections of a selected course are
immediately displayed to allow users to manually choose the selected section
or click the Reschedule button to let the system handle choosing the best
student schedule. Multiple sections listed for a single period are sorted
based on available seats. Sections are color coded: red if the section is
full, yellow if the teacher’s number of students exceeds their max load and
teacher load monitoring is enabled, blue if the section is available, or
green if the section is selected. Additional information about each section
is available by hovering the mouse over an "Info" graphic. Course
Request Packets are also still available but now multiple packets can be
selected at once. Alternate Course Scheduling is also supported using an
"Edit" graphic next to the course title on the
"Read-Only" side of this page. "View MST" has also been
redesigned to display floating within the window or "docked" to the
bottom of the page. Searching and sorting the View MST screen is now easier
to use. The "Classes Old" page is still available to users if they
aren't ready to make the switch.
The Add Assignment window has a new option to
"Push New Assignment to Selected Gradebooks". If this option is
selected, only the current gradebook and the selected gradebooks will get the
new assignment. This will overwrite the default behavior which will add the
new assignment to all linked gradebooks.

Supplemental Attendance by Teacher (New)
now includes a new button to "Check in ALL Students for the Selected
Date". The "Weekly View/Edit" option will no longer force the
display from Monday thru Sunday, but rather show the selected date as the
first day of the week, allowing the new mass check-in to function for the
selected date. Also, this page design has been adjusted to better fit the
screen. Also, this page can now be accessed from the Supplemental Attendance
node without having to select Teacher Emulation. Added a button to print the
new Room Student-Self-Sign-In Sheet report. Also, the page would give an
error when the selected session did not have times defined, fixed.

allowing multiple rooms to be printed at once. Also, the QR code now includes
the School Code in addition to the Room (for future use with the Student
App). Increased the font size on all elements of the report.
Supplemental Attendance Sign In
will now include walk-in sessions that meet in the given room today during
the current time even if the student is not enrolled in them. Also added
custom text that will display when a student is unable to login to the page
either due to permission or invalid IP address range.

fixed. Also increased the height of the Teacher box to fit up to 4 staff
Supplemental Attendance Class Roster report
wording on the 1 Day Roster's "Signature on Time-In & Time-Out"

to clarify the purpose of multiple signatures.
This report had the potential to under-report the YTD
data when there are records for zero minutes (ATD.TM = 0) or not selecting to
Sort on Participation Reason, fixed.
Supplemental Attendance by Student
has been modified for use in the New UI.
The Terms page will now automatically update Gradebook
dates (GBK, GBR, and GBU) when related Term dates are updated. Both Gradebook
and Course Attendance (CAR) updates are now being done as a "Long
Running Process" performed by the Aeries Reporting Engine, allowing the
Term date change to save immediately and avoid time-out errors. The Terms
page also now includes 1st/2nd Half of Term dates when the Master Scheduled
includes sections defined as "FIRST" or "SECOND" in the Split
Term field (MST.DY).

Down arrows are now consistent and represent the action you will take. When
