PREPARING FOR THE 2016-2017 SCHOOL YEAR
Here are some Home Campus tips that will help you get ready for summer camps
and the 2016-2017 year!
ACTIVE SCHOOL YEAR
When making any schedule entires or changes for the 2016-2017 school year, making sure that you’re in the correct school year is important. If you’re getting tired of changing the year each time you make an entry/edit, try changing the active school year on your account. Do this by going to Users, Edit your account, and change the User Active Year, seen in the screenshot below. When you are done, make sure that you are switching back to the current school year!
ONLINE ATHLETIC CLEARANCES
It is time to set up the 2016-2017 clearances! Many schools will be using Athletic Clearance for their Summer sports as well as early Fall registration. Users (Students/Parents/Guardians) will not be able to register for 2016-2017 sports/activities until they are activated on the Admin side (Home Campus), here is how to do that…
Clearance Confirmation Message
If you are using the Confirmation Message as an extra layer of security at the end of your Clearance process, you will want to make sure that any mention of the year is updated from 2015-2016 to 2016-2017.
Please check the physical you have uploaded to make sure that it is current. If it is a current physical you can save from previous year to apply it to the 2016-2017 school year.
Often times, there is a year listed on these forms. If that is the case you will want to update the attachment and perhaps the text that will show on the User side. To do this, click edit next to the form you wish to check or update, and upload new form and/or change text. See screenshot below.
Activating 2016-2017 Sports
To add sports, click Add New on the Clearance page. Here you will be choosing all fields that Students and Parent/Guardians will be required to fill out; anything that is checked off will be a mandatory field. Select the 2016-2017 school year, all the sports you wish to activate, and check off all preferences. Under the Insurance Message, you can customize the message that will show if a User indicates that they do not have insurance. The Status should be set to Active and then save. Once you press Save, the sports that you listed will now be active on Athletic Clearance.
Most clearance accounts were set up by Home Campus so this may be new for you. Please do not hesitate to contact us for assistance. If you provide us with the sports you would like to activate as well as the date you want them to be active, we may be able to help!
