Calendar Page

Use this page to add, view, copy, and update calendar information. When you save, the system creates or updates calendar day records based on your entries in the fields on this page.

Calendars affect both attendance and the range of valid entry/withdrawal dates. After creating a calendar, update specific days as needed from the Calendar Day page.

If teachers in the building use Teacher Access Center to take attendance, all calendars in the building must have the same cycle day and alternate cycle day designated for a calendar day. For example, it would be invalid for the date 1/4/2016 to be defined as cycle day 1 in calendar R and cycle day 2 in calendar S.
