    High School and Middle School Scheduling Training - All students in the MS and HS should have course requests entered, however we will review the process to enter student course request.  Course requests are needed to determine correct tallies so adjustments can be made to next year's master schedule.  We will configure the Batch Scheduler, reviewing all parameters and the impact each has on the process.  We will look at the various reports available to assist with completing the scheduling process.
     (Please make sure that Pre-scheduling and Student Promotion / Bulk Enrollment have been completed for your building prior to training.  Student course requests will also need to be in StudentInformation in order to run the Batch Scheduler.)
