Entering assignments after semester is over

Our semester just ended and a teacher wants to add the final exam to her gradebook but gets a message that the semester is over. What needs to change in settings to allow teachers to create assignments after the last day? Grades have not been finalized yet.

Make sure that the teacher is entering a valid date within the term's parameters. By default PowerSchool uses the current date. So if your term ended on Friday, December 17, use that or an earlier date as the due date.

@mball1  The "Such-and-such Term Has Ended" message is purely informational and will in now way impact teachers working in their gradebooks. If Term Locks have been enabled, however, that will prevent teachers from working in their gradebooks. A locked term, will say "The Q2 Term Is Locked" (or something like that; I forget).

 

Someone with the appropriate security access on the Admin side can unlock that teacher's section.
