Load Constraints

Load constraints restrict the way PowerScheduler loads students into courses in the master schedule.

PowerSchool includes six types of definable load constraints. Each constrain student schedules in a specific way. For example, use a Student Preference constraint to force a student to be scheduled in a particular teacher's section.

Since constraints restrict student schedules, the more constraints you define, the less flexibility the system has to load students into courses and the less optimal the resulting schedule will be. It is always best to use the fewest number of constraints required to accomplish your scheduling goals.

For more information, refer to Work with Load Constraints.

Load constraints differ from build constraints, which are defined before building a master schedule. For information about build constraints, refer to Build Constraints Overview.
