End of Year procedures

This page covers incrementing year levels for primary school students in preparation (similar to rollover) for the new academic year, together with processing leavers and setting up classes and teachers for the following year.

The year level on enrolled students automatically increments once the new year begins in edge. For Pre-Enrolled students, the year level does not increment in the new year, remaining at the level it was entered.

A student's status changes from Pre-enrolled to Enrolled once the 'Start Date here' matches the current date AND 'Present' attendance data has been entered.

  • If no class for the current year has been entered against an Enrolled student, (s)he will be listed under ‘Unassigned’ on the People > Students > Enrolment Summary page 

  • If a year level has not been entered against a Pre-enrolled student, (s)he will be listed under ‘Undefined’ on the People > Students > Student Counts > Pre-enrolled students page


Entering Classes/Teachers for the following year

Classes (Rooms) and their teacher(s) can be entered against students ahead of time. Once the start date for that Class (Room) matches the current date, the student will appear on the relevant teacher’s roll.
