Set up Grading Terms - 2:21 Minutes
V Planners: V3 and High School V Planner

Review Term Date Setup

  1. (Completed at Step One) Select the quantity of grading terms, sometimes called grading periods, at the Data worksheet.
  2. (Completed at Step One) Select which term begins the second semester. This setting affects the split s-sheets at Data worksheet.
  3. (Completed at Step Two) Set up the school calendar at the Days worksheet.
  4. Go to the Terms worksheet and select the beginning date for each grading term from the long and tedious drop-down lists.
  5. Only select dates for “active terms.” An active term has a number assigned to it.
  6. For V3, select term dates for each child.
  7. Dates selected must be a school date.

This completes Step three in V Planner Setup
Setup for this step is different for older versions of V Planner.

Changing Term Dates or Altering Number of Terms Later

As briefly demonstrated in the video-
If a term needs to be added, then first add the term at the Data worksheet, but do not forget to return to the Terms sheet to select the beginning term date. And when additional school dates are necessary, return to the Days worksheet to add more school days.
