    Set up the periods/times for your school by selecting "Add/Edit/Delete Periods"

    Give each period a name you commonly use.

    Set the time and day of the week corresponding to that Period and return.

    Note that periods are valid for the student roster for which it is created. The periods in the example shown are only valid for the demo data set. Go to the bottom of this discussion to view how a CSV file should look extracted from your SIS.

    If you use another Good School Tool app, you can simply share the Roster between apps.

    Once you are happy with the set up for the periods for your school, return to Tardy Prefs.
