Overview  

Navigate to School Info > School Options.


A new option called Track Primary Classes for Students was added to the School Options page. This feature allows a school to identify a course as a Primary Class. This feature will allow elementary schools the ability to use Flex Scheduling. The option is displayed next to the Scheduling Type and will only be visible when the Scheduling Type is set to 3-Flex Scheduling. A pre-requisite for this option is to enable the Flex Scheduling and Use StaffID Based Counseling Feature flags

Enabling the Option  

On the School Options page, select the checkmark for Track Primary Classes for Students. If the school has not enabled the Use Staff ID Based Counselor Tracking, a popup message will display to inform user that this option will also be enabled. Select OK to proceed. Selecting Cancel will also cancel the option to turn on Track Primary Classes since both options must be enabled together in order to use Primary Classes for Students. If Staff ID Based Counselor Tracking is already enabled, this message will not display. 



Once this option is selected, click SAVE.



NOTE:  School type must be set for Flex Scheduling and Staff ID Based Counselor Tracking must also be enabled in order to use the Track Primary Classes for Students option.
