This column of the substitution window shows the type of substitution.
- B -
Standby is cancelled: Cancellation of a standby.
Standby substitution: an open substitution for a standby.
Supervision:We are talking about "supervision" when a teacher supervises another class whose teacher is absent in addition to his/her regular lesson.
- E -
Personal studies: In some classes, in particular in higher levels classes can do their personal studes when their teacher is not available. When teachers of such classes are absent, an automatic cancellation (according to the substitution time grid of the class) is turned into a "+"substitution. (see chapter "Personal studies")
Cancellation: Lessons which do not have a substitution teacher are cancelled.
- F -
Release: A release is a period in which a teacher becomes available (released) due to his regular class being absent.
- K -
Examination: An official test.
- L -
Teacher swap: A teacher swap means that a teacher is scheduled for a period in which he/she actually was teaching and needs to be substituted by another teacher.
- P -
Break supervision: A substitution of a break supervision. (see chapter "Substitutions of break supervisions")
- R -
Room substitution: If an alternative room needs to be assigned to a period as a replacement for the original room, this is called room substitution.
- S -
Special duty: is a lesson which needs to be taken over spontaneously and can be entered in the timetable, scheduling dialogue or in the "Special duty" window.
Special duty for lesson pool: If a period from the lesson pool is scheduled, a special duty is generated from this lesson pool period. (see chapter"Lesson pool")
In-lieusubstitution: This type of substitution applies if a teacher is scheduled for stubstition in a released period.
- T -
Swap: A period swap can either be performed in the scheduling dialogue or in the timetable.
Part substitution: Two or more teachers can take over a lesson which needs to be substituted together and split the substitution. (see chapter "Split substitutions").
Contrary to absence: In this case, a teacher was scheduled as his/her own substitute although he/she is absent.
- U -
Lesson: If you want to show the regular lessons taking place in a certain time range, you can define this in the settings.
Lesson changed: If an element, for instance, the subject is changed for a scheduled lesson in the scheduling dialogue, this information is shown as changed lesson.
- V -
Event: An event entered in the event window.
Shifted: In this case, a substitution was caused by a shift of a period.
Shift: This entry shows that a period was shifted from another period (see also the "from", "to" columns in the substitution window).
Substitution: A "standard" substitution. A teacher who does not have a lesson in this period of the timetable, takes over the substitution of the colleagues who is not available.
Subst. without teacher: If you do not want to schedule a substitute teacher for an open substitution, however, it cannot be cancelled either, you can enter a "+" for the substitute teacher. This substitution line is considered as edited and receives the code: "Subst. without teacher".
Lesson pool: If a period is not to be substituted at the originally scheduled time but at any time during the course of the school year, you can put it in the lesson pool. For a more detailed description read the chapter: "Lesson pool".
In the <Settings> of the substitution window you can select which type of substitutions are generally to be displayed. The display of events, for instance, can be shown for printing in the substitution view, but can be hidden in the view which is used for substitution planning.
You can change the text describing the type of the substitution. Let's presume that you would like to change the term "Personal studies" to "Study time", and want to have it in the substitution list. Go to "Modules | Cover scheduling | Settings | Colours and terminology". There is a column for colouring and a column for names called "Description". Enter the name you would like to replace the original term. In our example, the term "Personal study" is replaced by "Study time". Then you assign the colour green to this substitution type.
