Course Configuration Overview
Courses are used to identify the curriculum offered by a school. Though classes within a course may be offered multiple times per year and may even be taught by different teachers, the course itself represents the set of academic material being taught in each of the individual classes.
Course Request Overview
Course requests are used to determine which courses a student should be scheduled to take in the upcoming school year. Some schools enter course requests in Veracross, then use the information to schedule their students by hand. However, most schools track course requests in Veracross in order to make use of the Veracross Scheduler.
Courses as part of the academic hierarchy are used to identify the curriculum offered by a school. Each different curriculum (ex: World History v. American History) would be parsed into its own course.
Course Request Document
The Course Request Document is a dynamically-updated PDF — accessible via Axiom or a link in your parent portal — that shows a student’s course requests for the upcoming year.
Course Requests v2 Configuration
Veracross currently supports two versions of Course Requests. Schools may choose which version of course requests they would like to enable.
Entering Course Requests in the Teacher Portal
Course Requests can optionally be entered in the teacher portal if your school allows teachers to enter Course Requests for their students or advisees for the upcoming year.
Entering Course Requests in the Student Portal
Course Requests can optionally be entered in the student portal if your school allows students to enter their own Course Requests for the upcoming year.
Managing Course Classifications
Course Classifications are tags that enable schools to filter courses for things such as Student Course Requests, GPA configurations, Other Program Courses, Summer Programs configuration, and the Veracross Scheduler.
