Grades for multilple same level schools

Postby rbackus » March 20th, 2014, 12:01 pm

We have multiple schools with the same grades, such as 4 elementary schools all grades K to 5. Do I need to setup 4 sets of grades for each school (School A grade 1, School B grade 2, etc) since it appears that a single grade can only be assigned to one school?

Thanks,

If all schools share the same curriculum (same units) then there is no need to set up multiple schools.

While these is commonality among our schools, the curriculum is not identical. For example, middle school A may have a course that middle school B does not have and vice versa.

Sounds like to me you are better off to create multiple schools and then use the "Shared Unit" and "Integrated Unit" features in TODCM to share/link units between schools/departments/courses.

The "Shared Unit" feature is on by default and the "Integrated Unit" feature can be turned on from the admin config menu.
