Adding Extra Curricular Courses

These are great for setting up short term courses/ sports/ crafts/ hobbies and other elective classes.

Firstly you will need to enable the Extra Curricular Module in SchoolPoint.
Settings => Modules => Extra Curricular => Enable

Click on the Extra Curricular Menu item on the left.
Add the New area with the NEW button top left. Much like SchoolPoint Course Selection itself, you can add Learning Areas/ Departments, and also Courses/Subjects and name them what you wish, applicable to your school's format.
Create the course/subjects to go under each Learning Area/Department.

Under OVERVIEW, select the minimum and maximum selections that each year level can choose from. If the course is Enabled it is viewable by the student once navigation is turned on.
There is now a new column for the student to select courses as backups- which is useful if they end up not being able to select their preferable courses.
The COST blocks mean how many lines the course takes up for the student (optional).

You can also make all the Courses INACTIVE in bulk, from the "Manage Extra Curricular Learning Areas" Screen rather than going into each course to make each inactive.

Ensure that the Student Navigation is turned on for the appropriate year level so the students can easily navigate when they log in, to select their courses.
Once the student logs in, they will then have the option to choose from the Extra Curricular courses, and prioritise them accordingly if they wish. These can be removed if needed.

Under the admin view, you can now see which courses students have selected which courses in a summary:

It is also now possible to export the student selections, and also export a file with the selections in the correct lines to then import into KAMAR if required.
You can find instructions under the KAMAR Help Guide here: https://www1.kamar.nz/104309 to be able to do this.

There is now new functionality to be able to LOCK students into a course, or UNLOCK, or REMOVE students. This can be done within the course as below:

Via the Admin view, you can see which courses students are in, and if they are locked or unlocked. By clicking the course name in the hyperlink, it will take you directly to that course to make any student changes:

There is also the ability to Export Students in a course, or Remove all students in a course:
