Add a Section

To add a section to the Master Schedule, click the mouse on the Add button. 

Populate the Period, Block, and Term.  A Section Number will auto-populate with the next available section number in relation to the period entered.  Select Class Calendar if it applies. Select the Course from the dropdown.

Click the mouse on the Teacher drop down arrow to select the teacher assigned to the class.  Use Tab to move throughout the form and enter data in remaining data fields, for example, Room, Credits, Class Maximum, etc. When data entry is complete, click the mouse on the Insert button and the class will be added to the Master Schedule

Class Link

The Class Link field (CL) is used to link two sections together such as Fall and Spring sections by using the same value in the field which will allow users to select one section using the View MST button found on the Classes page, and Aeries will add both linked sections automatically to the students schedule (SEC). The field can hold a maximum of 6 alpha-numeric characters. The link will occur when matching values exist in two sections.

Change a Section

To select the section to be changed, search for the section and click the mouse on the Section Number.

Click on the Change button and enter the data changes needed, then click Save.

Note: Changes cannot be made on a section to the Section Number, Period, Block, Semester, Course ID, or Teacher fields once Attendance and CAR have been activated.

The Copy button is used to copy a section and create a new section with the same information. This option can also be used to copy or move students into the new section. Select the section to be copied and click the Copy button.
