Calendar enables easy setup of all date information for the school year, including semesters start/end, terms start/end, holidays, vacations, special event days, and rotating scheduling if applicable.  Grades2Go™ Desktop automatically creates a full calendar for the year (All Days) using Key Days info created here plus day/rotation info from Profile.

 

The Calendar form has three tabs: Semesters/Terms, Key Days, and All Days.  Each will be covered separately.
