This student scheduling system was written for use on a microcomputer to give the local high school more control over the scheduling process. Scheduling systems are used by high schools to schedule their students, balance classes, and print student schedules and class lists. A scheduling system must be flexible to provide for the generation of many different types of schedules. Most scheduling programs currently used are shared by high schools through the use of BOCES (Board of Cooperative Educational Services). Schools send their schedules to the BOCES regional computer centers to be run on mainframe computers. This scheduling system was written using Apple Pascal for use on an Apple HE microcomputer. The system was developed to do student scheduling for a high school of less than 1200 students. The system will section students and provide the school with student schedules, class lists as well as many scheduling tools which are useful in the development of the schedule.
