The "Sections" tab allows you to group students together in cohorts and assign them to attend courses together. This is also where you determine which staff member teaches which course.
When you make a new section, you can add students manually, you can select a roster of kids from an existing section, or you can upload a spreadsheet with a roster of students. Learn more about uploading a spreadsheet here.
By default, students will be enrolled in a section for the duration of the school year. There's no need to modify start or end dates if having kids enrolled for the full year is the right move.
If you need to adjust dates though, when a student joins late or leaves early, click into the start or end date field for that student and pick the correct date. To make adjustments like this in bulk, download the enrollment template, make your changes, and upload it back to this section.
Note that modifying full year start and end dates will have the following effects:
- Students will not show up automatically on assessments that are dated before a student starts a section enrollment, or after a student ends a section enrollment
- Students whose enrollments end before a term bin will not be eligible for a report card grade for that course (i.e. if a student is unenrolled two days before the end of Q2, s/he will not get a Q2 grade)
