One of the awesome things about QuickSchools is how flexible it is, and how well it adapts to different school structures. Not only does the system work well with standard term- or semester- based grading, but it’s also great for schools with rolling admissions or rolling enrollment.
For our schools that might be interested in a rolling setup for their QuickSchools account, we’ve made a demo rolling admissions school. In this post, we’ll take a quick tour through the demo. Of course, if you have any questions, or are interested in setting up your account for a rolling admissions or enrollment system, feel free to chat in or email any time – we’d love to help.
A rolling enrollment school account looks very similar to a standard semester-based account. Here’s a look at the rolling enrollment students module. While its the same module as the semester-based account, information is tracked slightly differently.
Because with rolling enrollment, students move through classes and promote levels independently of each other, students’ grade level is not tracked in the student record for most semesters. Students classes and grades are recorded to a specific semester named and used for keeping records for all students when they in a particular grade. In effect, semesters are relative to the students’ grade-levels, rather than based on the calendar. Read more…
There’s a great new app in the QuickSchools app store – CALPADS state reporting! This app is for California, US schools to submit their required student and teacher data reports to the Department of Education.

The Formulaic Semesters template is one from the library of private templates. It’s a neat two-semester template that lets you display gradebook formulas alongside regular marks and grades. Take a look at the example below to check it out!
Designed by Azroy, this is a powerful template that allows schools to report grades in several different ways. Semester averages are summarized into marks and grades, as well as shown alongside averages that are broken down by grading categories. The template is designed to show two grading cycles together, which is great for semester grades or for showing two quarters together. In addition to these features, Formulaic Semesters supports tons of other important information…

The app lets you track a list of families that have space to accommodate a student over a particular timeframe. Any family can be entered into the system, which means teachers, staff, and other people connected to the school can volunteer as host families for students.
The app allows you to manage records for host families, their availability, and see the history of when students stayed with them.
Planned accommodations for students can also be viewed and edited from the app. Read more…

The Twin Verticals template is available by default in all schools, and it’s a great template for schools, colleges, and universities that wish to report two grading cycles together. The setup is designed for semester-based grading, but it also works great in quarterly grading systems for mid-term grades. Check out the sample below to see!
Not only is this template is a bit different from our others, because it shows just two grading cycles, it also has tons of great information and calculations that upper-level schools often wish to report. There’s plenty of space for marks, grades, term averages, GPA & yearly averages, a detailed attendance box, and even a space to note if a student has been promoted to the next grade or retained. Along with all these features, the template also supports….
