We have custom report cards which pulls the teacher information from the Home Room field. I noticed in next years database if I edit the Home Room (under Modify Info) it changes this current year to my edit as well. We are an elementary school so most students here have just one gen ed teacher. Is there a way to change it so the Home Room teacher stays in that field box for each year. Our district just changed to PowerSchool this year so we are trying to figure out the best way to store information each year.
Any help is appreciated!
The home_room field is just a regular student field and is not associated to a school year. So if you change it now, that will become the current value. Schools typically wait until after the End of Year Process is run before editing this field for the upcoming school year. Hope this clarifies.
