How do I add extra days to my calendar?

 

Sometimes it is necessary to add days to the beginning or end of the academic calendar.  This may happen when the SchoolInsight calendar is created before the school’s academic calendar is known, when there are emergency days added at the end of the year, or as a result of a mistake.  Changing the calendar can be done at the district or school level, depending on how your school’s permissions are set.

To add days to the beginning and/or end of the calendar:  

  1. Go to Admin Main > Calendars
  2. Select view located at the right hand side of the calendar that is to be changed
  3. Select Add Calendar Days
  4. Enter the correct Start Date and End Date
  5. Save

After adding days to the calendar, it may be necessary to edit the newly added days to change the attendance type, the start/end time, and to set the correct cycle day.

To edit the calendar to change the attendance type and school day start/end time:

  1. Go to Admin Main > Calendars
  2. Select view located at the right hand side of the calendar that is to be changed
  3. Select edit for the month that is to be edited
  4. For the newly added days, select the correct attendance code type for each day
  5. If the school start and/or end time will be different for a particular day, select set school time and enter the time
  6. Save

To assign cycle days (for schools using cycle days):

  1. Go to Admin Main > Scheduling > Cycle Days > Assign Cycle Days
  2. For the newly added days, select the appropriate cycle day
  3. Save
