Promoting students is not necessary in this software. When you add or edit a student's information and you assign a year to the student, the software automatically increases the year by one level in each successive school year. It also decreases the year by one level in each preceding school year. For example, if you add a student in your current school year and choose 3 as the student's year, when you work in the next school year, the year will be shown as 4. (The year will be 2 in the previous school year.)
However, you can increase or decrease the year for a group of students when you edit multiple students.
