Add a School

The Add a School screen is used to add a new school to Focus. The school will then be available in the school pull-down at the top-right of the screen, and the process of setting up marking periods, calendars, periods, grade levels, etc. for the school can begin. The fields that display on the Add a School form are set up in Setup > School Fields.
