Complete this step only after all report cards have been generated for the current academic year.
The next step is to manage your students for next year. This includes archiving graduated year groups, moving year groups up a grade level, archiving individual students who are not returning & importing any new students. Complete this in the following order:
Via the Homepage, navigate to Year Groups > See all Year Groups > click Transition Years.
Transition the year groups for each programme, archiving the graduating year groups who are leaving the school and moving lower year groups up a year level.
Click Save Changes to transition. Repeat steps 2 - 4 for each programme.
Note: only archive graduating year groups who are not returning. Year groups moving from one programme up into another (e.g. MYP5 to DP1) should be moved up a year level.
Finally, add a new year group for the lowest year level via to Year Groups > See all Year Groups > Add New Group.
If your school is using ManageBac for Primary Years, continue to Transitioning Primary Students.
If your school is not using ManageBac for Primary School, you'll need to import new students into the lowest level year group by following this tutorial here. Once completed, continue to the final step to Transition Classes.
First, move the graduating PYP students into Middle Years. This can be done via Settings > School Directory > Memberships. Filter for students in the highest PYP grade level, select all, and click the 'arrow icon' to move students to the lowest level Middle Years year group.
Click Confirm Assignments to complete and then move to the next step.
In PYP, the grade level of the student is defined by the grade level of the class, so the remaining lower level PYP students can be moved up a grade level by transitioning the Homeroom class.
Navigate to Transition Classes > IB Primary Years. Select the Archive and duplicate into the next grade level option. This option will archive the current classes & duplicate classes a year level higher
Tick the Messages and Files checkboxes if you wish to reuse the class messages & files in the next year. Add or remove teachers from the Teachers dropdown.
Click Save Changes to transition classes & students up a grade level.
Next create new Homeroom classes for the new students coming into your lowest grade level via Inquiry > Add New Class. Click here for further guidance on creating a class.
Next, continue to Part 4 to Transition Classes.
