Getting Started page for Trial Schools

For schools that sign up for a new QuickSchools trial, we’ve introduced a new step called “Setup academic terms”:

With this step in place, new trial schools can review the ability to create and edit academic terms. Clicking on the link will take the user to the “New Semester Setup” > “View All Semesters” screen.
