While this check does not involve state required fields, the mentioned fields will have a direct impact on Master Scheduling, Elementary Schedule, and scheduling reporting. As such, it behooves you to spend the time ensuring these are set correctly before moving on. Once again, time spent now will save a substantial time later on in the school year.
The Low Grade Level ID and the High Grade Level ID to the corresponding grade levels for which this course can be available for. For example, if you have a generic Homeroom course that is used by grade K-6, then the Low Grade Level ID should be set as value 1 (for kindergarten) and the High Grade Level ID as 7 (for grade 6). One of the common errors is to just set every course as being available at all grade levels, which unnecessarily affiliates high school courses to elementary grade levels and vice versa.

In a similar vein, the Site ID is another important field to ensure each course is necessary affiliated to the appropriate site. For example, Government AP is a strictly High School course and, therefore, should only be available at the high school sites. With that in mind, only your high school site IDs should be affiliated to this course.
