As an Admin, you can Create Sections and then Edit Sections. Within this document we will discuss how to create a Section and the different settings you can use. This is a permissions based action, if you do not see some of the buttons and/or options described in this document then you may need to contact an Admin of your system to ensure all proper permissions have been given to complete the needed tasks. In order to create Sections you must first set up a Courses.
Course vs. Section
A course can be looked at as the “Subject” that is provided by a school. Meanwhile, a section is better looked at as the specific class taking that subject. For example: A school offers an 8:00am Algebra II class taught by Mrs. Johnson and then an 11:30am Algebra II class taught by Mr. Richards. The way this would be in the system would be: an Algebra II Course then would hold two Sections, one for Mrs. Johnson’s class and one for Mr. Richard’s class.
