The new year process prepares your school's AdminPlus data for the new school year. You can start the new year process at any time during the current (active) school year.
When the active school year ends, you transfer database and report card data to the new school year using the End of Year Process.
Warning: You must complete the new year process before you begin the end of year process. If you complete end of year tasks while the active year is still in session, and then make changes to the active year, those changes will overwrite data in the new year.
