• 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.
