Set one school as the default school to which the selected group of students graduates when they leave your school. This saves you from having to display each student record to mark the student's next school.
Indicate which students will attend your school next year. The school you select determines from which student course request pages the students will make their selections.
Suppose you work at a high school that includes grades 9 through 12. In order to include the eighth-graders, who will be ninth-graders in the fall, change their next school to your school. To exclude the twelfth graders, change their next school to Graduated students.
Note: Don't forget to set the Next School Indicator field for students who are continuing at your school next year.
If there is more than one school that your students often graduate to or move to, you may want to set up additional next schools. For more information, see Next School.
