How do I exempt students from completing focus areas?

Note: This feature is only available to people with admin level accounts. 

You can exempt students from completing focus areas when they transfer to your school mid-year. You should not use this tool if a student is behind and want to catch him or her up, or if a student scored a 7/10 on a content assessment.

  1. Click Setup
  2. Click Students
  3. Find the student who needs a focus area exemption
  4. Click the three dots next to the student's name
  5. Click Focus Area Exemptions
  6. Type in the name of the focus area
  7. Fill out reason for exemption
  8. At the end of the week, all admins at your school will receive a confirmation email with a summary of exemptions from the past week
When a student receives exemptions for focus areas, those focus area will move to the Other Focus Areas row in their Year page.  All focus areas in this row do not count towards a student's grade.  The remaining focus areas will be redistributed evenly across their respective rows.
