Be an Vision SIS Client.
Requires administrative/staff access to the Vision SIS and School Configuration.
Vision SIS allows you to choose either from the default term definitions (4 Quarter, 6 Term, Trimester, Semester, Year) or customize your own unique term definitions. The term definition scheme allows you to combine different term configurations in the same school. For example, a single school with grades 6 through 12, could set up 4-quarter term definitions for the high school grades and 6-term for the middle school grades. The Vision SIS solution will accommodate almost any combination of term patterns.
Terms are used throughout the scheduling module, class attendance and attendance summaries.
Starting and ending dates and weeks in the Term Definitions are required for class attendance, the Staff Portal Student Schedule Editor, and some state reporting exports. If this information is missing or invalid, these features will not work correctly.
Note: If your school uses split terms (terms that have more than one start and stop time), you will have to continue to use the Edit Term Definitions found in Generations.
