- Classes Meet (Normal Rotation)
- Classes Meet (Outside Rotation - Skip)
- Classes Meet (Outside Rotation - Bump)
- No Classes (Skip)
- No Classes (Bump)
The terms, Skip and Bump, refer to how to handle that day's rotation. For example, let's refer to a school that has a two-day rotation. On Day 1, Periods 1 through 4; and on Day 2, Periods 5 through 8 meet. Let's say that today (Monday) is Day 1, tomorrow (Tuesday) is Day 2, the following day (Wednesday) is Day 1, etc. Tomorrow is a special day where there are no classes. That would normally be Day 2 in the rotation. Do you want Wednesday to be a Day 1 or a Day 2?
- If you edit Tuesday's schedule to say No Classes (Skip), Tuesday's normal rotation day (2) would be skipped and Wednesday would be Day 1.
- If you edit Tuesday's schedule to say No Classes (Bump), Tuesday's normal rotation day (2) would be bumped to Wednesday and Wednesday would be Day 2.
- In either case, the normal rotation picks up again after Wednesday.
This would also apply in the case where classes meet and you are following a special schedule. Which day in the rotation should be following day be? Skip would omit that day from the rotation, while Bump would move that day's rotation to the next.
