Occasionally, a Teacher may schedule a Lesson Plan for a particular day but won't be able to finish it. Rather than copying on the following day (and moving the rest of their lesson plans to accommodate) there's a faster way: Extending the Lesson Plan.

Extending a Lesson Plan will not only duplicate the selected lesson plan but also move any conflicting lesson plans as necessary.

In the example shown above, there are two lesson plans with a one day gap between them. When we extend the first lesson plan, it simply fills in the gap.

However, in this second example, there isn't a gap between the two lesson plans, so when the first lesson is extended it moves the second lesson forwards to compensate.

To extend a lesson plan:

  1. Make sure you're on the Lesson Plans tab.
  2. Make sure you are viewing the correct Term.
  3. Click the arrows in the top right corner of the lesson plan you would like to extend.
  4. Specify the number of days you would like to extend the lesson plan for.
  5. Click Extend.

Note: You cannot extend a lesson plan outside of the date range of the selected term.
