Adding School Years

When you purchase Renaissance Place software, the first school year is entered for you. Each year, you must add the next school year before you can use the software in that school year.

When each new school year starts, it will automatically become the current school year - the year that all users are working in automatically when they log in. You can still choose to work in a different school year.

Who can do this with default capabilities?

District Administrators, District Staff

  1. On the Home page, select School Years.
  2. Select Add School Year.
  3. On the Add School Year page, enter the school year start date and end date in the appropriate blank fields. (You can type the dates or select the calendar buttons to enter them.)
  4. Select Add to finish adding the new school year.
  5. If you decide not to add this school year, select Cancel instead.

To prepare to use the software in a new school year, see Getting Ready for a New School Year.

If you use Renaissance Place during summer school, you may need to adjust your school year dates. For more information about setting the dates, see Knowledge Base article 7901571 at
