TERMS AND ACCESS REGISTRATION
Of the four sections found on the School Settings page, only the Terms and Access Registration Management sections are essential to ensuring that your School Loop site is properly configured.
Terms (e.g. quarter, semester, year) are part of the data School Loop imports, but the start and end dates must be set manually. Here is an article to learn more about How to set terms.
ACCESS AND REGISTRATION MANAGEMENT
All of the settings related to access to School Loop and user registration have been grouped into a single page. See Access & Registration Management Settings.
Settings History records the username, date, time and action for all changes to the school-wide settings. It has a table of records which shows all the setting changes done by a user on a certain computer.
Calculate Averages in Progress Reports
Calculate Averages in Progress Reports gives teachers the option to include the overall class average in the progress reports for individual students, allowing students and their parents to compare the student's average with the average of all students in that period.
District Admins can broadcast the settings for terms and Access Registration Management from a single form. All schools in the district are updated with the same settings in a single click. If some schools have unique settings, follow the directions listed above. Here is an article that illustrates the way Global Settings are done.
