Towards the end of Summer, before the new school year begins. Shortly before the start of a school year, School Loop prepares sites for the new year by archiving certain types of content. This process occurs approximately 10 days before the first day of the school year. The exact date is at the school's discretion.
School Loop archives LoopMail, Assignments, Progress Reports and Course Notes. Other types of content are either perpetual (click for more information) or cleared.
School Loop - all versions.
Assignments are archived and can be located by clicking the Course Archives link in Quick Links on the teacher's portal page. Archived Assignments may be copied and republished to any course or Curriculum Group a user is in. There is also a Mass Copy option which will publish the assignment to all listed courses.
Course Locker content is archived; however, course lockers also remain in the courses and are available automatically in your classrooms if you teach the same course next year.
Teachers can copy and republish course notes to be displayed on the Bulletin Board.
Published Units, Lessons, and Assignments are archived and can be located by clicking the Course Archives link in the Quick Links on the teacher's portal page. Archived Curricula can be copied and republished. Units, Lessons and Assignments in draft form will not be archived.
This refers to tudents without active schedules remain in the student list, unless they have graduated (see deleted content below). However inactive students and their parents are unable to login and do not appear in LoopMail, trackers or other active user lists within the system.
Teachers who have left the school will move to the Inactive Teachers list when the school is rolled. This allows administrators to access archived progress reports and other records from the teacher accounts. Login rights can be blocked from the Inactive Teachers list.
LoopMail messages for the three previous school years are available through the Historical Archive link on the left side of your LoopMail inbox. Archived messages are sorted by school year and you will have access to both your sent and received LoopMail messages. Messages that you have placed in custom folders will not be automatically archived and will remain in their folders.
Past progress reports are also available through the teacher's Course Archives link. Please note that we do not archive your full gradebook. Only the published progress reports are archived and cannot be edited. It is important to make sure you have published grades in all of your Gradebooks to ensure that progress reports are available to be archived.
- Course websites are no longer tied to your Course schedules. Archived material copied from your archives will appear in your Classrooms instead of your old course websites.
- Course archives cannot be copied out of the archives until you have an active schedule. Some districts do not import schedules until just before the first day of school.
- In Gradebooks Plus, teachers will have access to their Gradebooks for the past school year only. These archived Gradebooks are fully functional except that you cannot add new assignments or change the settings. In the standard version, Gradebooks are deleted at the end of the school year.
