Half Day Bell Schedule
In the AVRSB, we have both "Regular Day" and "Half Day" Bell schedules. PowerSchool should reflect this but in many cases I am not seeing that both have been created. If you create one, it will mean your teachers don't have to take attendance for classes that actually aren't occurring that day (e.g. Homeroom Attendance PM or afternoon classes in High School). This will lead to more accurate attendance.
If you go to Startpage --> School --> Bell Schedules, this is what we should see.
The number of periods in your half day should reflect the number of periods you have before the dismissal.
For example, compare the Half Day and Regular Day bell schedules for a school.
Once created you need to go into your calendar to set it up correctly to reflect your Half Day bell schedule on the half days.
