We are placing students socially-distanced in classrooms and then having the teachers rotate through the classrooms. So, the students will be with their same "learning pod" throughout the entire school day.
1. I am wondering how to set this up in PowerScheduler. I was thinking of assigning all students in a grade to a "House" and then have dynamic "Teams" within the "House." I have never scheduled this way before, so I am looking for some guidance.
2. Lunch will be in the classrooms, so how do I schedule the lunchtimes?
Thank you for your help in advance.
Hi, I can't really help you with the first question. We looked at this option on a high school level to see if PowerScheduler could identify and group students with the same course requests. Because of math, world languages, visual/performing arts, etc. there are so many variable combinations that it is impossible to do this by hand. However, in a school that has a standard selection of class, this is much more possible.
For the second, you can create a class called LUNCH (no credit - do not store grade, etc.). You can mass enroll the students from a specific team or house into that "class/section".
Thank you for responding. I already have a lunch period with only two sections from previous school years. I will just need to expand the number of sections for this year. Thank you for helping me think through #2.
