Copying Non-Teaching Days from the Previous School Year

Who can do this with default capabilities?

School Network Administrators, School Network Staff, School Administrators, School Staff

If you are a school administrator and you are assigned to more than one school, on the Home page, select your user name, then select Change Role to choose the school you want to work with before following these steps.

For each new school year, you can copy non-teaching days from the previous school year. This link is only available if you have not copied non-teaching days before for this school year and if there are non-teaching days available for the selected school(s) from the previous school year.

You can use non-teaching days to record any days when school is not in session. Accelerated Maths and Accelerated Reader use non-teaching days for some report calculations.

  1. If you want to copy non-teaching days into a future school year, you must choose to work in that school year first.
  2. On the Home page, click School Years.
  3. Click Add/Edit Non-Teaching Days.
  4. If you are a school network administrator or school network staff member, on the Select Schools page, tick the box next to each school for which you want to copy non-teaching days. Then, click Next >.
  5. On the Add/Edit Non-Teaching Days page, the Copy Non-Teaching Days link will be available if you have not copied non-teaching days into this school year before. Click the link.
  6. The non-teaching days that can be copied will be listed. Note that the dates will be adjusted when you copy them to be within the new school year. To continue, click Copy.
  7. You will return to the Add/Edit Non-Teaching Days page, where you can make adjustments to the non-teaching days if necessary:
    • To add more non-teaching days, enter a name and the dates. (You can click the calendar buttons to select the dates instead of typing them.) Then click Add to add the non-teaching day to the list at the bottom of the page.
    • To delete any of the non-teaching days, click Delete in the row for the item.
    • To edit a non-teaching day, click Edit in the row for that item, change the information in the fields at the top of the page and click Update.
    • To re-sort the list by start date, click Start Date. To sort by name again, click Name.

    If you are copying non-teaching days for multiple schools, click the number of schools at the top of the page or in the table to see the school names.

  8. To save the non-teaching days you have copied and any changes you have made, click Save.
