There may be times when you wish to block imports to your schools. This can be done on a per school basis either via your setup for Sloopy or using the block import feature.
This feature is only available to those with District Admin accounts. When you log into your account,
1. Click the School Site List link in the Toolbox in the right column of your portal homepage. From there, click the name of the school where you wish to block imports.
2. When you land on page for one of your school sites, look for the School Info section in the right column. At the bottom of that section you'll see:
3. Click the Change button to block imports for that site. You'll notice that the status for imports changes to "Blocked".
This feature allows you to block imports on the School Loop site without interrupting the actual import process on your end.
Don't forget to change it back to "Allowed" when you are ready to resume imports.
When Not to Block Imports
Imports should not be blocked on the first day of a new term. School Loop automatically drops schedules when a term ends, and if new term schedules are not imported, then students and teachers may not have any active schedules.
Teachers will be able to continue to work on previous term gradebooks even though the previous term schedules have been dropped and new schedules have been made active. Teachers can access all gradebooks for a course from the Add/Edit Gradebooks menu.
Teachers will be able to submit grades after a term ends as long as the marking period is setup correctly. The marking period ends date must be a date within the term that was active for that marking period.
