Odd/Even Day schedules are often referenced as A/B Day schedules which is incorrect and in Aeries they are not referenced as A/B Day schedules. In scheduling students with Odd/Even Day schedules there is no difference as in regular scheduling.  You are still scheduling students into periods 1 to 6.  What is different is the impact on attendance, since every class does not meet every day.


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



In this situation, the buttons that repeat 1 or 2 weeks will not skip school holidays, individual days may have to be corrected after using the repeat function.


The second form 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.
