To edit the Grade Plan Group tied to a course, all grades and comments must be removed from all sections of the course. However, If the course has historic grading data associated with it, then you cannot change the grade plan group. Instead you can create a new course and tie the new grade plan group, Teachers, and Students to the new course.Then, inactivate the old course. If there are no prior years Grades tied to it, then you will need to run a Report OR create a list to see who has recorded Grades and remove them.

To run the Report, navigate to:
  1. Analysis > Reports > in the Category dropdown select Grading
  2. Click Run next to the Grading Report titled: Grades – By Course and Teacher
  3. Select the Grade Plan Group and Grade Plan
  4. Click Generate Report
  5. Remove the Grades from any affected Grade Plan

To create a list navigate to:
  1. Navigate to Analysis > Manage Lists
  2. Click the Manage basic and advanced lists block under List Actions
  3. Click the List Templates tab
  4. In the Template Category dropdown, select the Grading category
  5. Click View/Copy next to Current Year Academic Grade Detail
  6. Within Select Objects add the following Objects:
  7. Expand Academic Group > Select Course Faculty (in Select Parent pop up box Select Course Group.Group ID = Course Faculty.Group ID)
  8. Expand Constituent Information > Select User Base (in Select Parent pop up box Course Faculty.Faculty User ID= User Base.User ID)
  9. Click Display Fields
  10. Click Select Fields
  11. Expand User Base > Course Enrollment > Course Group > Course Faculty > User Base [1] and select First Name and Last Name, Click Select.
  12. Select the Filters tab
  13. Click + to add a Global Filter of: Grade Plan Grade.Grade Description is any of "Name of Grade Plan"
  14. Add another Global Filter of Course Faculty.Head is True
  15. Then remove the Grades for these Teachers/Courses.
Note: This does not work for Assessment Grades, as there is not a report or List that can be run for Assessment Grades. You can have the Teachers individually remove the Grades and then you will be able to change the Category. Alternatively you can contact Support via How do I contact Blackbaud K-12 Support? and let us know that you would like us to bulk remove the Grades (ensure you have these grades elsewhere so you can re enter them). Once you contact Support with the Grade Plan Description, and what the Grade Category is and should be, we will then have the Data Team delete the grades in bulk and assist in changing the Grade Category.
After you have ran the report or created the list, a Grading Manager will then navigate to:
  1. Academics > Grades Management > Enter Grades by Class
  2. Select Record Grades
  3. Filter for the current School Level, Grade Plan Group, and Term the Course(s) are attached to
  4. Click View
  5. Click Record into each affected Teachers Course
  6. Remove all Grades/Comments associated with this Grade Plan Group (Before you remove grades ensure you have this via a List or Report so you can re record after removing them)
  7. Click Save & Exit
  8. Repeat this process for each Course
