After general course data has been entered and saved on the Edit Course Data page, schedulers can use the "Sections" tab to add important details to their courses. Create class sections with a corresponding term, period, days in session, and teacher all with this awesome feature. Enter the information on this tab so you can accurately build a master schedule, schedule students into appropriate course sections, and get on with the learning!

Go to Schedules > Course > Edit Course Data and click the "Sections" tab to get started.

Step One: Click the "Add Section" link to add a new section for the currently displayed course.

Fun Fact: A "Section" represents a classroom of students. Adding a section allows you to assign a term, period, teacher, room number and meeting days for a course.

Step Two: Click the "Edit" link next to the newly added course section to edit the section. 

Step Three: Select the specific term for the course section from the "Term" drop-down list. 

Step Four: Select the period the section will meet from the "Period" drop-down list.

Fun Fact: The section number displayed in the section row is an internal number used by jmc and is not editable by the user.

Step Five: Place a checkmark under the "Days" column for the days the course section meets. 

Helpful Tip: If you are scheduling elementary classes, uncheck the days to avoid scheduling conflicts that prevent students from being scheduled into sections.

Step Six: Select the teacher of the course section from the "Teacher" drop-down list to enable class rosters in jmc Teacher, teacher load limits when building the master scheduler, teacher classroom attendance entry, and more.

Step Seven: Select the room the course is meeting in from the "Room" drop-down list.

Fun Fact: In the "Enroll" column, you'll see a set of two numbers informing you of student enrollment counts.

  • First set: the number of students enrolled in the specific course section

  • Second set: the total number of students scheduled in the currently displayed course

Helpful Tip: Hover over the number to see a list of enrolled students or click the number to see a full class list for the section if you need the names of the specific students scheduled into the section.

Step Eight: Click the "Update" link to save your changes or the "Cancel" link to discard.

Helpful Tip: Click the "Delete" link to remove a section from the selected course if you accidentally created an extra section or no longer need an old section.
