The data worksheet in the High School V Planner is very much like the data worksheet in the regular V planner, but because this is for High School and for one student, I needed to make a few changes. This page describes the parts of the Data worksheet in the High School V Planner.
Because this is the High School V Planner, the course categories at the Lists worksheet needs to be filled in, or just checked and edited sometime during setup, preferably NOW. So take care of the course categories at the Lists worksheet and then come back to Data.
The first part is exactly like filling in the regular V Planner Data worksheet and so I will copy and paste those instructions here.
—— START copied part of Setup: Step One – Data ——
This step takes place at the Data Worksheet and the individual student Data# worksheets that are named Data1, Data2, Data3 and Data4. On this page I will briefly go over which cells need to be filled in at DATA.
Your Information and the Personal Calendar
INFO- Your first name and your birthday is used at the Today worksheet.
First fill in your first name or nick-name – it needs to be a short name, not your first and last name, just your first name or your nickname.
At “Your Birthday”, enter your birthday – the month and day is enough – like this: 03/16.
Optional Information for Transcripts
The upper part of the Data worksheet asks for information that will appear on the Transcripts and that information is:
- parent name
- street address
- school name
- phone number
Filling in this information is optional, however; if it is not filled in, parts of the upper part of the transcripts will be blank and that is okay. Blank rows may be hidden so that the empty space will not appear on the printed copies.
The Calendar Date
INFO- This particular calendar is not the school calendar.
The V Planner includes a personal calendar and the date for this calendar is set at the Data worksheet. I have a suggestion regarding the date and you can read it at the Data worksheet. You do not have to follow my suggestion.
—— END copied part of Setup: Step One – Data —–
In rows 30 through 33 enter the student’s basic information. The birthday is optional.
The rest of the rows in this area – Rows 34-35 should fill in automatically. I left the rows open just in case you needed to change something.
The Grade– This planner is made for high school use to create a 4-year record and no matter if your student is in 10th, 11th, or 12th grade, please enter grades accordingly –
- Row 33 – 9th grade
- Row 37 – 10th grade
- Row 41 – 11th grade
- Row 45 – 12th grade
If you are using the planner for grades that are not high school, you may change the grades, and I don’t know if that will have an impact on the planner. One thing that you should NOT do is enter any grade twice.
Classes Taken Away from Home
In the regular V Planner this is on the Data# worksheets, but because the High School V Planner is for one student and because I did not want duplicate locations, I placed this optional feature on the Data worksheet.
Using this class location feature is optional. What it will do is if the class location is selected at the Data# worksheets, this will set the class location legend on the transcripts. On the transcript, classes are tagged with the key symbol and under the list of classes the key and location will be noted.

Credits Earned Before 9th Grade
Because earning high school credits before high school is a relatively common thing, I included a table into which you may add up to 12 instances of earned credit. Fill in the table based on the table headings. The items in the table will appear on both of the two 4-year transcripts.
You will notice that a Category is part of the items to enter. Using categories is optional, but I hope that you will because some items in the V Planner depend on your use of categories. Also I should mention here that the categories are edited at the Lists worksheet and that SHOULD be done first.
Just a note – If you do not like how the either one of the 4-year transcripts are laid out, then please open a word processor and create a transcript using the data from the High School V Planner.
A table at the bottom of the worksheet links you to the remaining Data# worksheets. You only need to fill in the ones that you are ready to fill in.
- If the student is in the 9th grade, fill in Data1.
- If the student is in the 10th grade, but never used this High School V Planner, then fill in Data1 for 9th and Data2 for 10th.
- If the student is in the 11th grade, but never used this High School V Planner, then fill in Data1 for 9th, Data2 for 10th, and Data3 for 11th.
- If the student is in the 12th grade, but never used this High School V Planner, then fill in Data1 for 9th, Data2 for 10th, Data3 for 11th, and Data4 for 12th.
