How to Setup New Semesters

Whether you are on a semester, trimester, term, 9-week cycle, or other grading period setup, soon enough, fresh gradebooks and attendance are in order. When the new marking period is about to start at school (even if you're still working on report cards), it’s time to create a New Semester in QuickSchools. Here are the steps for starting the new term: 

1 - Go to New Semester Setup

2 - Click “Create New Semester”

3 - Title your new semester

  • Target Semester should be left at “Create new semester”

4 - Enter the Semester Start Date - the first day of the semester

5 - Enter the Semester End Date - the last day of the semester

6 - Click the red “Create New Semester” button

7 - Click “Close” to the “Done” dialogue box that pops up

All the subject and student data has been copied over and the new the semester has been set as active!

...and now you have a fresh semester for a fresh marking period! Hope this helps explain how to set up a new semester in the current academic year. If you have any questions or need any help at all, please feel free to chat in anytime!
