Are you ready for summer school?
Doesn’t it feel like there’s never enough time between the end of the school year and the start of summer school? Fear not—you can get your district all set up for summer school on Clever by following three steps.
First, check your sync pause date
Your student information system (SIS) data changes from the current school year to the next, which impacts the data you have in Clever. To minimize impact of the large data changes, you’ll need to “pause” existing school year data for the summer. By default, your pause date has been set for two days before the last day of your school year. Check your pause date and adjust as necessary, or learn more about sync pauses.
Second, create custom sections
Since your SIS sync will be paused (and you may not already store summer school rosters in your SIS), you’ll want to create special “custom sections” for your summer school classes to share with the applications you’re using this summer. You (or your school tech leads) can create custom sections in either of two ways:
1. Manually create custom sections in your Clever dashboard.
Find detailed instructions on creating and maintaining custom sections here.
Third, add your summer school applications
You’re almost done! Now add the applications that your students will be using this summer. (Don’t forget to share the custom sections you just created with those applications.)
And of course if you have any questions, our friendly support team can walk you through the set up steps. Learn more in our Help Center.
