Configure the School Calendar

Use Calendar Setup to view, edit, or set up your school's calendar for the current academic year. At the top of the page, the system displays the month you are currently viewing and the six months before and after it. While your school calendar displays information regarding when school is in session for users, the system uses the calendar and the prerequisites you define to calculate the ADA/ADM statistics that you report to the state.

Before the start of a school year, define each field for each date in that year. During the school year, you can update your school's calendar.

Note: For the Update Mobility Script to function as expected, the school calendar and terms must be set up for each year in which students have enrollments. For example, if school enrollments for students exist from the year 2014, but your Years & Terms start with 2017, then you must set up a year term for 2014, 2015, and 2016 . After the year terms are set up, the calendar must be configured for each of these years, with bell schedules, cycle days, membership value and in session status.


The following must be defined before you set up your school calendar:
