The schools registered with School Loop generally delete certain data pertaining to a school year at the end of that academic year. Here is a brief overview of Year-to-Year Archiving.
School Loop doesn't delete much from year to year, but when we do, it happens at the same time other content is archived -- approximately 10 days before the start of the new school year.
All assignment discussions are purged. When a teacher republishes an assignment from their Course Archives, no discussion is attached.
No attendance data from previous years is retained in School Loop.
Course events are purged at the beginning of the school year.
Gradebooks are not carried over from past years. Published grades are available from the Course Archives. We encourage teachers to download or print copy of their Gradebook.
Note: 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.
Because Gradebooks are not carried over from previous years, teachers must re-enter any Gradebook settings at the beginning of the new school year, including grade scales, categories, and custom codes.
Grade Export Data
Grade export data including print reports from the previous year are not retained. Teachers can use the Save and Print button on the grade submission screen to keep a printed version of submitted grades for their records.
Graduating Student and Parent Accounts
Graduating student accounts and parent accounts associated with those students are deleted from the system.
Student Dropbox and Turned-In Work
Student work from the previous year is not retained. Students can use their personal lockers to save work from year to year.
School Loop does not retain information on a student's schedule from the previous school year.
Each year the statistics are reset, starting page counters from a fresh zero.
Notes posted on webpages are purged at the beginning of the school year.
