SchoolCity SUITE allows users at all levels to create groups of students and groups of courses for various purposes. While a Student Group is a group of students within a classroom or course, a Course Group is a group of courses or classes. Depending on the user role, a Course Group may include only the courses assigned to one teacher, or may include similar courses in a school or district. This document will review the process for creating a new Course Group.
