When Teacher Load Monitoring is enabled, the Classes New form will color code overloaded sections in orange, so that sections can be chosen accordingly. In order to enable Teacher Load Monitoring, the Monitor Teacher Load Aeries variable must be set, the AeriesCS macro Compute Teacher Load must be run, and the maximum number of students per day must be defined for any teacher whose load will be monitored.
