Student vs. Staff Focus
Student focus
Staff focus
Where is your master schedule?

Teams
IDTs Content Teams
group of teachers from different subject areas that share a common prep period and a common group of students group of teachers from a similar subject area that share a common prep period
Impact Impact
Loss of flexibility for students with singleton conflicts Moderate depending upon number of teams Impacts seats per hour
p. 13, E

IDT Teams
Pros Cons
Provide teachers with a common prep period for planning and student management Allow interdisciplinary curriculum design Student options for electives become limited Students have a greater likelihood of being tracked through team and non/team sections
What do you see as the pros and cons of IDTs?

Terms
  • The number of times a course is offered
  • Grades are posted to history at the end of a term

Example 2 Term year
  • Courses
  • Biology1 - 6111 - Fall
  • Biology2 - 6112 - Spring
  • School Year
  • Fall Semester
  • Spring Semester

Building Multi-Term Schedules
Q Why do I want to link classes together? A
Because students follow certain patterns when
they move from term to term Q How am I going to
do this? A Using two different methods
Section Linking Loader Rules
p.G
29
Section Linking
Associating multiple sections with each other. A
student scheduled for one linked section will
automatically receive the other sections.
Pros Cons
Zangle follows the rule 100 of the time Only need to put in course request for first course Must build a section link for EACH section Must rebuild section links each time you edit the schedule and export the results

Loader Rules
Loader Rules A method of creating rules for when
a student is scheduled for a course. Loader rules
can specify what classes a student should take
before they are scheduled for a course. Does not
apply to individual sections.
Pros Cons
Can create before/after rules Can keep groups of teachers together Rules can be saved for next year Does not connect individual classes

Scheduling Map Vocabulary
  • What is a Constraint?
  • What is a Singleton?
  • What is a Doubleton?

54
Order of placing sections when using the Master
Builder
  • Constraints / Locked Singletons and/or Doubletons
  • All singletons use Conflict Summary
  • All doubletons use Conflict Summary
  • Three Section Courses use Balance Summary
  • Etc... (please see p. 15 for complete list)

Next Steps
  • Begin development of your master schedule map
  • Contact ICC if piloting a new course
  • Submit your track setup to IT (3/15)
  • Determine if you will use section linking. If so,
    define root courses
  • Determine if your schedule will include teams.
    What subject areas will be included? How will the
    students be assigned to a team?
