Registration Assignment Page

Use this page to mass update a specific field for multiple students; for example, to assign homerooms. You can update house/team, counselor, advisor, disciplinarian, primary and second homeroom for the current year, summer school, or the next school year. You can also update the building for summer school or next year. Unlike a mass update, it allows you to update multiple values and balance or fill them across the students selected.


Once you complete a mass update, there is no way to undo your changes unless you back up database tables.

Back up your database tables before running a mass update. You can restore data from the backup if you are not satisfied with the mass update results.

Create a New Program Record

If you check this box, a new program record is added. You must enter the appropriate dates in the Program End Date and Program Start Date.

Fill Method

Select one of the following to determine the method the system uses when assigning more than one value:

Balance - Cycles through the values, so each student receives a different value, until the maximum number of students is reached for all values. For example, If you are assigning 3 counselors, the first student gets counselor one, the second student gets counselor two, the third student gets counselor three, and the fourth student gets counselor one.
Fill - Assigns the same value for all students until the maximum number of students is reached, then assigns the next value.

Maximum Students Per Value

Used to limit the number of students to be assigned to a value. If you leave this blank, there is no limit.

Bell Schedule

Select the bell schedule for the update. This field only displays when the building has multiple bell schedules and House/Team is the Field selection.
