Scheduling Elective Classes With Teaming


Scheduling Elective Classes With Teaming

We are a 7th and 8th grade middle school where students are divided into 4 teams (2 per grade) and go to their core classes exclusively with teachers on their team. However, elective classes are taught by teachers who are not affiliated with a team--they see students from different teams throughout their day. Will trying to schedule teachers with no team create a problem when building a schedule in Power Scheduler? If so, is there a solution that would work for these elective teachers? Appreciate any advice the community can offer. Thanks!

I am in the same boat as you.  When you set up a team and assign teachers to that team, I don't think they can go with other Teams. Therefore, I would have to multiple aux teachers.  Instead of using Teams, I was thinking of creating classes and naming them after my team, like Star Academy ELA-7th. Then mass enrolling students in those classes. Then the aux teachers could still be the teachers for the Star Academy students and the students not in Star Academy.
