  • One spot to manage Courses and everything related to it
  • Annual Course Catalogs for each school

    • Excluded courses should never appear at the school site level
    • Ability to enable new courses to only appear when scheduling for next year
  • Easy way to manage State Reporting fields for courses
  • Ability to immediately find potential misassignments between courses and teacher credentials

Changes & Differences from Existing Functionality

    • Search on any displayed field
    • Save, extract, print any view created
  • Larger Course IDs (10-15 characters)
