The schools registered with School Loop generally archive data pertaining to a school year at the end of that academic year. However, there is some content that is not archived but remains perpetually available. Here is a brief overview of Year-to-Year Archiving.
Discussion threads for groups, news items, and events. All discussion in these areas will continue to display on an ongoing basis. Users can continue discussions over the summer and into the new year.
Events. The last 12 months of events at all levels (district, school, groups, personal, and website events) are saved from year to year. Course events are removed just before the beginning of the new year.
Groups. All groups including Curriculum Groups are perpetual and remain unchanged from year to year.
Lockers. No locker content is altered when the site is rolled into the new year, with the exception of course lockers, as discussed in regards to archiving. This includes personal lockers, group lockers, and website lockers. In the case of personal lockers, any saved file will continue to be available into the next year, provided that user returns to the school.
News. News from the past 12 months will be saved. By clicking the View All News button wherever news is displayed in the system, you will be able to look at news dating back for this time period.
User Accounts. All user accounts (with the exception of graduating student/parent accounts) are kept from year to year. All account types except for teachers and students can be manually deleted by using the Delete link in the user lists.
Website content. Content posted to the school website will not be altered from one year to the next. Changes can be made to the website at any time by users with webmaster rights, and the system will never delete anything with the exception of website notes, which get cleared just before the beginning of the new school year.
