Before and during the school year, student schedules are changed. Courses and/or sections can be dropped, new courses or sections can be added, and students can change from one section in a course to another section of the same course.
Note: to mass change students' schedules, use the Master Schedule page. See the Move, Copy or Drop Students in a Section in the Master Schedule documentation for more information.
To modify a student's schedule, start by finding the student who needs a schedule change. Next, Filter Pages for Classes or navigate to Student Data > Scheduling > Classes.
Click the Edit button to view the student's schedule in Edit Mode.
Change a Section Using the Edit Mode Workspace
In Edit Mode, check the End Date and Start Date. The End Date should be the last school day that the student was enrolled in the old section (the section they are leaving). The Start Date should filled in with the first school day when the student will be enrolled in the new section (the section they are entering). In order for the Course Attendance Reporting (CAR) table to be properly maintained, these dates must be correct.
In this example,the student's last day in the old section is today, so End Date is correctly populated with today's date. Start Date is populated with the tomorrow's date, when they will start in the new section.
Locate the course in their schedule that contains the section that will be changed. In this example, the student is changing sections of PE 9.
The student is currently enrolled in a 5th period section of PE 9 (signified in the display by the color green), but needs to move into a section in first period. Click on the section that the student is moving into. The new section will turn green.
Click the Save button:
Changes to course attendance will be written to CAR and the student's schedule will reflect the new section.
