A Semester in your Chalk account is the time period where you are teaching the same students the same subjects. This may differ from school to school in what they are called or how they are set up, but to make it easiest for you, you'll want to pick the beginning and end dates that you're teaching your same group of students the same subject.
Here are some simple steps to how you can successfully set up your semester!
Name your Semester! I named mine after the school year (2017-2018 School Year), since in my example I will be teaching the same set of student, and the same subjects, all year long.
Pick the start date and the end date of your semester. Because I will have the same students and timetable the entire school year, I entered the first and last day of school.
Note: You can edit your end date at any time, but your start date cannot change without the help of Chalk Support.
Select the "teaching days" of your semester. This will be the days that your school has in their "Rotation". In most cases this is Monday to Friday, but differs from place to place!
When you're done, select the "Save and Create your First Subject" button to move to the next step!
