How to move to a New Term in the same Academic Session

This is a guide on how to start using SchoolX at the beginning of a new term within the same session. For example, it is January and we are starting second term within the same academic year. You will need to do two things first:

  1. Change the Current Term
  2. Move all students from the previous term to the current term

Changing the Current Term

  • Step 1: Click on the App Settings menu and select System Settings in the Sub Menu as shown in this image

 

 

 

 

 

  • Step 2: In the System Settings window, select the new term from the drop down menu. You will see Three terms there. Once done, click the Save Button

Moving students to the new term

  • Step 3: Next, move to the App Settings menu again, and click on Manage Promotions/Demotions.

 

 

 

 

  • Step 4: In the Promotions/Demotions window that appears, you will need to move the students from the Previous Term to the Current term. Once these are done, the active term on the dashboard should change to the current term, and all students would be assigned classes in this new term.

If you attempt to work on the system without moving students to the new term, you will either get errors of student has not been assigned a class, or you will be overwriting things already recorded in the previous term.
