Sections are managed only after master scheduling has been completed. Here are some examples when these options may occur:
Create: After the start of the year, a section is created because of new enrollment. (Keep in mind this is a rare occurrence.)
Edit: A new teacher replaces the teacher who goes on an extended leave.
Merge: Two sections with low enrollment are combined into one section.
Delete: This occurs under very rare instances. Check with your Illuminate district admin before you perform this action.
The ability to create, edit, merge, and delete sections is permission controlled. In order to perform any of these tasks, you must have permissions enabled. Please contact your Illuminate system admin for assistance.
Proceed with caution! Any changes you make will take effect immediately. These changes will affect Gradebook and attendance data for students. Deleting a section will remove all Gradebook and attendance data.
