Build your best master schedule with confidence and on your terms
We understand the enormity of the challenge educators face each year when building a master schedule. Between requirements for each grade level, course requests, singletons, teacher and room availability and section balancing, planning out a successful high school schedule can consume many more hours, days or even weeks than any other school process. That is why we built the Super Deluxe Schedule Builder in AdminPlus. It provides advanced and powerful tools to help you meet your scheduling goals, maximize course fulfillment, and minimize conflicts - all while sparing you the extra headaches that come with building a master schedule.

Prepping your lists
Each high school has a different approach to assigning courses. Depending on your school model, you can choose to assign courses to your students, allow them to choose their own, or even a combination of both.
Generate sign-up sheets, manual or scanned course request forms, course preference forms, and course request verification forms right in our Master Schedule Builder. Use our Online Forms to streamline the submission process.
Evaluate and resolve conflicts
One of the most powerful tools in our Master Schedule Builder is the interactive mode, where you can see each course and the top recommended blocks to assign it. You can clearly see the number of scheduled and non-scheduled students in relation to the optimum size of each section.
The Master Schedule Builder makes it easy to resolve conflicts, such as exceeding section optimums, higher priority courses, teacher availability, or too many courses requested. While using interactive mode, unscheduled students and teachers are listed automatically, making it convenient to click and view their schedules and conflicts at any stage of your current build. This allows you to evaluate how to adjust your build to maximize course fulfillment and finalize your master schedule.
