Managing Classes

Administrative users can manage the class catalog and the website's configuration settings. This article lists the basic steps for managing classes and explains some of the website's idiosyncrasies.

Let's begin by setting things up for the new school year. In short, the class registry and catalog must be cleared, and various dates must be updated in the website's settings.

  • Navigate to the Administration > Manage Database viewer. You may see a note that data files have been backed up and/or that the currently displayed table has been alphabetized.
  • Use the drop-down near the top of the page to select the Registration table, and click Load Table.
  • Scroll to the bottom of the page, and click the Delete All button. The Registration table should now be empty.
  • Use the drop-down to select the Class Catalog table, click Load Table, scroll all the way to the bottom, and click Delete All. The Class Catalog should now be empty, too.
  • Click on the Settings menu item. Update School Year, and set Current Trimester and Registration Trimester to Fall.
  • Also set the date for each phase of class registration, paying attention to the customary day of the week, listed in each field's description.
  • Click Save.

Now, you can begin adding the new classes, and assigning teachers and aides. Don't forget to include Study Hall and Nursery, for each hour!
