Promoting students is not necessary in this software since students are automatically moved to the next grade when a new school year starts. However, you can increase or decrease the grade level for a group of students if necessary when you edit multiple students.
When you add or edit a student's information and you assign a grade to the student, the software automatically increases the grade by one level in each successive school year. It also decreases the grade by one level in each preceding school year. For example, if you add a student in your current school year and choose 3 as the student's grade, when you work in the next school year, the grade will be shown as 4. (The grade will be 2 in the previous school year.)
