Schedule Entry Page: Grid Mode

Use this page to view or change the student's schedule in a grid format. The grid displays the day periods or timeslots down the side with the cycle days across the top. While the grid's default view combines all marking periods into a single grid, an option is available for displaying separate grids for individual marking periods.

You can determine how data displays in the grid by selecting whether to show periods or timeslots and by selecting the cycle days and marking period weeks to include. When you change and save the settings, the grid displays this way for other students that you access.

You can change information for a course in the schedule by clicking the course's link. You can also add a course for an open period in the student's schedule by clicking on the empty cell. For an overview of the changes you can make from the Grid page, refer to Change Schedules in Schedule Entry Grid.


If the student is taking courses in another building, the courses will not be shown in the grid. Instead, they will be listed in the Courses in Other Buildings section below the grid.

Menu Path: Scheduling > Student Schedules > Student > Schedule Entry > click Grid

The Schedule Entry page can also be used to view the grid for a modeled schedule from the Requests page. After you run the Model Schedule option on the Requests page, click

 (Additional options), then select Schedule Grid.

View By

Determines whether the grid displays rows for timeslots or periods.


Period - to display rows for the periods for the building. For example, select Period if you want the grid to display a row showing the courses that meet in period 2 regardless of what timeslot period 2 meets on a cycle day. If you select Period, the period information will default to the Master Schedule Search pop-up window when you add a new course by clicking a blank space.
Timeslot - to display rows for the timeslots for the building. For example, select Timeslot if you want the grid to display a row showing the courses that the student is in during the timeslot from 8 to 8:50.

View Weeks

Determines the durations to display in the grid. A separate list of marking period weeks will display, depending on the durations selected for the building. For example, if your building schedules courses for a marking period (9 week) duration and a wheel (6 week) duration, you'll see sections for the marking period durations, followed by sections for the wheel durations.

Select codes from the field's drop-down list, or click

(asterisk) to select all codes, then remove any that do not apply.

View Cycle Days

Determines the cycle days to display in the grid.

Select codes from the field's drop-down list, or click

(asterisk) to select all codes, then remove any that do not apply.

Non Standard Periods

Checked if you want to display non-standard periods in the grid. For example, check this box to display courses scheduled for an early bird period, which was defined because most students are not scheduled prior to the start of the school day.

Dropped Courses

Checked if you want to display courses that the student has dropped. If a course is dropped, the word dropped displays after the course's code and name in the grid.

Display Marking Periods Separately

Checked if you want to display separate grids for each marking period in the student's schedule.

Student Schedule Panel



Color Legend Section

This section displays a key to the background colors for cells in the schedule grid. Default colors include:

Light Purple: Indicates courses scheduled during the periods/marking periods listed.

Pink - Indicates multiple courses meet during the same period/timeslot and day. This background indicates a potential conflict. If one of the courses in the cell is dropped, it is likely that there is no conflict because the add and drop dates should not overlap.

White - Identifies empty cells showing where the student is not scheduled to attend a course. You can click on the cell to display the Master Schedule Search dialog for selecting a course.

Dark Gray - Indicates periods that do not meet on a cycle day.

If your building has more than one duration type, each duration type will display in a specific color, as shown in the key. For example, if the building schedules both marking period (9 week) and wheel courses (6 week), courses that meet during marking periods might display in blue and courses that meet during wheels might display in purple.

Schedule Entry Grid Section

This section displays the grid for the student's schedule. The grid displays rows for the Periods or Timeslots, depending on your selection in the View By field, and columns for the Cycle Days. You can click the course link in a cell to display the course's Student Course page.

For a key to the background colors, refer to the Color Legend section.

When eSchoolPlus creates a modeled schedule, an alert displays at the top of this panel with Keep and Discard options displayed.

  • To keep the modeled schedule and replace the student's current schedule, click Keep.
  • To return to the student's current schedule and discard your changes, click Discard.

Courses in Other Buildings Section

This section, if displayed, lists the courses the student is taking at other buildings. Because buildings can have different marking period weeks, cycle days, and periods, the courses are not displayed in the grid.
