Student schedules for the upcoming school year were available on Infinite Campus as early as August 1. As long as students were registered for school by then, their schedules would be accessible.

Regarding the release of the schedules, many students weren’t aware.

“I didn’t know our schedule was available August 1 until a friend told me where to go and how to find it.” senior Ana Manrique said.

After students logged on to Infinite Campus, it was difficult to find the schedules. The correct “Student Schedules” link was at the bottom of the screen in a small font, much different from the larger tabs above, including a misleading one that read “Responsive Schedule.”

“At first, I couldn’t find the tab that let’s you get to the page to see your schedule. Once I found it, I got an error message telling me there was something wrong. I took a wild guess and updated my phone. Only then did it work. It was super frustrating,” senior Ashley Elenz said.

Although some students were confused about the release, using the electronic method of informing students was well-received.

“I would recommend the electronic because you don’t have to make a trip to our school to get it; it’s easily accessible,” senior Olivia Glowacka said.

In past years, students had to come to school a couple weeks before school to get their schedule. Last year, schedule pick-up was during the “Back to School Bash,” but this year, the event did not take place.

Using Infinite Campus eliminated time taken out of students’ lives to come and get it instead of quickly checking online.

“I like this method since it was easier than actually going to school and waiting in line,” Manrique said.

The earlier release of schedule gave students more time to check their schedules and make sure all their classes were correct.

“I like having this simple method because then we have over two weeks to remember your schedule or contact your counselor about any changes,” Glowacka said.

Despite the lack of communication regarding the release of schedules, the Infinite Campus version received a rather positive reaction from students.
