What will happen at the start of the new school year?

At the start of each school year, Sumdog will automatically move the students up a grade/year level (this will be done on 1 August). This will be the grade/year level reflected on their profile.

However, we will not automatically move the students to another class or change the name of their current class. The reason for this is that due to the way each school might arrange their classes we will not know the class the student will be moving to or who their teacher will be.

For example, some school may choose to arrange their classes by grade/year while others by the name of the class teacher or by homeroom.

Depending on how the classes are set up you might need to assign a teacher to a class, move students to a new class, or upload multiple students (this will include creating new accounts and moving the existing students to their new classes).

If you have students leaving your school do remember to move them to the Removed folder, they will then be able to join their new school with their account.

If you have a student joining you from another school, the student will be able to request to join your school.
