Odd/Even Day schedules are often referenced as A/B Day schedules, but this is incorrect. In Aeries, they are not referenced as A/B Day schedules. When scheduling students with Odd/Even Day schedules. there is no difference in scheduling -- students are still scheduled into periods 1 through 7, for example. The important difference is the impact of Odd/Even Day schedules on attendance, since every class does not meet on every day.


Two pages are used in Aeries to properly set up Odd/Even Day schedules.  The first page is the Block Schedule Calendar.  This page is used to indicate which class periods meet on individual school days and would be set up as in the example below. 



In this situation, the buttons that repeat one or twp weeks of bell periods will not skip school holidays, so individual days may have to be corrected after using the repeat function.


The second page used is the Bell Scheduler. The COD table must be modified to include a Type code for Even Day and Odd Day (BSD.TY).  Then the Bell Scheduler can be used to create a bell schedule for each type of day.  Once the bell schedule is created, it must be linked to the school days where it will be in place.
