    • Complete any actions that need to be completed. 
  2. Generate the Course Percentage Complete report and determine which courses need to be archived.

    Be sure to select the most appropriate Reason code for accurate reporting.

Students tab

  1. Archive graduated students.
  2. Place ALL other students On Hold.
    • This immediately cleans the Active student list. Since some students will not return, an Administrator can decide who gets added back. This also sets up an opportunity to review the student's permissions.

School Settings tab

  1. Terms: Create new terms. 
  2. Calendar: identify the No School days. 
  3. Grading, Pacing, & Assessments and Permissions: Review ALL settings and permissions. Adjust where needed. 

Courses tab

  1. Review all active custom courses
  2. Archive unneeded custom courses.

Reports tab: Activity Reports

  1. Generate the Detailed Student Grading report.
    • Run for Archived/On Hold students.
    • Run by individual status as needed for reporting purposes (i.e. Complete, Incomplete, Dropped, Void)

     Tips

    Save time by creating a defined set of end of semester/year protocols for teachers to follow. Indicate which actions to take and which reports are needed, along with any other close-out instructions.
