I’m a little bleary eyed, but the class schedules are all but done now, and pdfs of the student schedules are being passed around and checked/double-checked. It’s been an interesting few months, and I still have help sheets to create tomorrow about doing attendance, but we look to be in good shape in many ways at this point of the migration. School starts on Tuesday for the HS, and Wednesday for MS/LS.
One nice thing– in terms of looking at and checking data, Veracross is a fairly transparent system. Instead of looking through little windows at the data, or in set formats, it’s fairly easy to get large and small views. It’s also been very good that we can crank out PDFs of all student schedules in a grade for quick checking and sharing (without wasting paper).
Little things, like day by day, period by period schedules for the classes at first seemed clumsy (why day by day?) until we found out that we sometimes needed the flexibility to schedule only one day instead of four in the 8 day rotation.
So, more work tomorrow, but maybe I can stop doing seven day weeks, after next weekend…
