The data in School Loop is archived at the end of every school year. Every year, when the school year ends and summer starts, there are questions about what content in the School Loop system carries over into the next year: what is archived, what is perpetual, and what is deleted? This article gives a brief overview of the archiving process.
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 to 4 weeks before the first day of the school year. The exact date is at the school's discretion.
Archived means the records will be placed in a specific location for later access.
Perpetual means that the records will simply continue to exist on an ongoing basis, and nothing will be deleted.
Deleted as you might expect, means they are removed from the system.
Note: Since some content, including assignments, course news, events, and notes are either archived or removed, it is best not to jump ahead and add this content for the next school year during the summer until the school has been rolled. The roll typically happens about a week to 10 days before the first day of school. Contact your district or School Loop support to find out when your school is scheduled to roll.
