Configure the System to Support the Scheduling of Course Sections
Configuring schedules in SchoolFront takes some significant upfront work. The effort is rewarded if you truly need the functionality which is an output of the scheduling configuration:
Easy to Print and Manage Individual Student Schedules
Easy to Print and Manage Individual Teacher Schedules
The Ability to Instantly Report Attendance at the Start of Each Period
Differing Seating Charts for Each Period
Important Note: Student in some schools / grades are not issued individual student schedules and they do not manage their days, rather teachers manage their days. Such students spend the majority of the day in one place, moving only occasionally to attend specialty-focused activities like physical education or music. Generally attendance for such students is taken once a day, first thing in the morning rather than every period.
For such schools, this whole section (Setup Scheduling) can be skipped and course sections will not be actually scheduled, which will allow teachers to optimally manage curriculum for pre-schoolers without the administrative burden of the unnecessary association of courses with a time of day and location.

Identify All Scheduling Permutations
SchoolFront supports the configuration of multiple differing scheduling days. Some schools use a single schedule with the same periods starting and ending at the same time daily, others have different schedules depending on the day of the week, and still others have alternating schedule configurations (i.e. and A-Day, B-day, C-day etc.).
Before you begin this part of the configuration, make sure you have all permutations of scheduling identified and ready for modeling in the system.
