In migrating to a new academic year, Quickschools archives your current academic term data and migrates it into the new academic term. It copies all data from the current academic term into the new academic term.
Academic terms are independent from each other. If you make changes to subjects, enrolments or grades in one academic term, it will not be reflected in other academic terms. For example, if you add a new “Pre-K Grade” or a new “Arts” subject in the current academic term, it will not appear in previous academic terms.
In migrating to the new academic term, some elements are not copied over and will be reset. For example, the Gradebook, Class Discussions, and Homework modules will start out empty.

As you migrate to the next school year, please take note of the following:
* Students move up a level.
* Final year students can be marked as having graduated.
* Subjects are the same as the current semester, but are empty.
* Enroll students in subjects after creating the semester.
* Changes can be made on a student-by-student basis after the new semester is created.

You will be notified with the following pop-up once the migration is done:
Once you’re done with migration, the students have to be enrolled to their respective subjects so teachers can start entering grades and taking attendance (if using subject-based attendance) for the new school year.
