When school administrators are running reports across multiple schools/departments, they need to know which classes belong to which school/department, so the classes can be grouped by school/department.
Because a teacher can sometimes be in multiple schools/departments, and a class can have multiple teachers, it is not enough to see who is a teacher for the class to determine which schools/departments the student outcomes should be associated with.
For this reason it is recommended that classes be associated with the appropriate school/department.
How can I tell what school or department classes are associated with?
When a teacher that is part of a school or district on a Gold plan (or pilot thereof) views their classes page they will be shown a warning on classes which don't have a school associated. They can also see under each class name which school/department that class is associated with.
How does one change the school/department a class is associated with?
To change the school/department association for a class, select that class and click "Edit" on the action bar that appears. There will be a field Org (this is a term we use to refer to schools, departments, and districts generically) which they can use to select the school/department to associated that class with.
What if we don't set the "Org" on a class to a school/department and leave it blank?
When a class is not associated with a school/department its results will show up in reports for any school/department that its main teacher is associated with.
