Schedule Settings

Configure Scheduling Settings for the School

Schools require differing degrees of process dispersal amongst staff. Some schools centralize the management of courses and course enroll with administrators creating course sections and handling the enrollment of students while teachers are simply issued a schedule. Other schools like to distribute the effort to teachers, requiring that teachers generate their own course sections in the system and handle enrollment of students into those courses.
