After setting the flex schedule calendar in jmc Office you are ready to create offerings that meet during flex periods. Administrators or other MTSS monitors can name a flex offering, assign a teacher, assign a room, set the capacity and make the offering open for all students or private to selected students to help create a culture of student ownership and accountability within your MTSS system.

To create an offering for the flex scheduler, head to File > Flex Schedules.

Step One: Click a scheduled flex period in the "Flex Times" box to add an offering for a specific flex period.

Step Two: Click the "Add Offering" link to begin entering an offering to the flex schedule.

Step Three: Select a teacher from the "Teacher" drop-down list to assign the offering to a specific teacher.

Step Four: Enter a name for the offering in the "Name" field to help students distinguish this offering from offerings from other teachers.

Helpful Tip: Creating an MTSS flex offering? Name the offering by the skill that is being taught by that teacher during the flex period. For example "Research Paper Help", or "Geometry", or "Civil War Review".

Step Five: Select a room from the "Room" drop-down list to inform students where the flex time offering will meet.

Step Six: Enter a number in the "Capacity" field to limit the number of students that can be added to the offering.

Step Seven: Place a checkmark in the "Offering Private to Selected Students" checkbox to prevent students from signing themselves up for the flex offering and instead make the offering available only to students you select.

Step Eight: Click the "Save" button to add the offering to the "Offerings" list, or click the "Close" button to discard your new offering.

Step Nine: Enter dates and times or simply click the "Calendar" and "Alarm Clock" icons in the "Student access to offerings" field to open a window of time for students to add themselves to an offering.

Helpful Tip: Enter the same date and time in both sets of fields to disable the student access window and prevent students from signing up for their own flex offerings.

Step Ten (optional): Click the "Edit Offering" link to make edits to the currently selected offering in the "Offerings" box.

Step Eleven (optional): Click the "Delete Offering" link to delete the currently selected offering in the "Offerings" box.

Step Twelve (optional): Click the "Copy Offerings" link to copy the flex offerings in the "Offerings" box to another scheduled flex period.

Step Thirteen: Click the "Print" button to print a copy of the currently selected offering's roster or click the "Export" button to export to a CSV file.

Helpful Tip: Click on the "Students Not In An Offering" in the "Offerings" box to view all students that have neither registered themselves nor have been signed up by a teacher for a flex offering.
