This lesson comprises an optional part of student scheduling and covers the process of creating scheduling rules that prevent a student from being placed into sections with particular teachers or students for the upcoming school year. This is useful in cases where 2 students have a history of unresolved conflict (e.g., if Johnny Doe and Jimmy Smith have a history of fighting, you can create a restriction that includes both Jimmy and Johnny, and the scheduler will refuse to place the 2 students in the same section), and in cases where a particular student and teacher just don't seem to "mesh" well, and you suspect that both parties will have a more successful year if they are not scheduled together.
Note: These student restrictions are only available in draft mode and will not carry over to the live schedule i.e., once the draft is published and schedule changes are made in the live schedule you will not be alerted to any restrictions that were made in draft mode.
