We used ClassroomParent this past year. How do I setup my system for the next year?

ClassroomParent has a feature called “Promote” that CP admins can use to setup their school in CP for the next year. Follow these steps to get to the Promote feature, then follow the instructions on the screen to complete next year’s setup.

You must be a CP Admin for your school to use this feature.

  1. Click the school year in the top right of the screen
  2. Select the next school year from the drop down and click the change year button.

Notice that there will be no grades, classrooms, students, etc listed, as you have not yet created them.

Now, do the following:

  1. Click the Admin tab
  2. Click the Promote tab

You will be placed in the Promote wizard, which will walk you step by step in setting up the next year.

During the Promote process, you will be able to configure the following for the new yearr:

  • Staff
  • Teachers
  • Classrooms (during the promotion process you first promote an empty classroom, then add students to it)
  • Students

You cannot promote groups, these must be created manually.

When you promote students, you will select the homeroom/grade from the previous year you want to work on, then for each student, select the homeroom they will be in for the new year. Don’t forget to click the “Promote the Selected Students” button before selecting another grade/homeroom to work on.

Don’t worry if you don’t have all of the information. You can leave and come back to the Promote process as many times as you want.

The last step of the promote process is to set the active year, so that when parents login, they will see the updated information. You may skip this step until you are ready, so you can build out the year as you gather the information (student homeroom placement, teacher assignments, etc), then make it availabe when you are ready.
