Creating/Editing Academic Levels

This article describes how an admin can make changes to the default Academic Level settings

ClassReach comes with default Academic Levels (Pre-K through 12th grade).  If you have a different kind of school (not a K-12 school) or you use custom levels, you can adjust that here.

It is important that you ensure your Academic Levels are in proper order. The system will automatically promote students to the next Academic Level in the list, if the levels are out of order then they will get promoted to the wrong one.


  • Sign in to your Admin ClassReach account.
  • Navigate to the Settings tab at the top of your screen.
  • Click Academic Levels in the School Settings window.

To Add a New Academic Level

  • Click the +Academic Level button at the top right of the screen to add a new academic level.

  • Fill out all relevant fields:
    • Name: This is the full name of the academic level, for example: Kindergarten
    • Abbreviation: This is the abbreviation used for lists and the like, for example: K or 1st.
    • High School: This will help determine what type of transcript settings apply.
    • Default Gradebook Setting: Use this if you have multiple grading systems in place and would like this to be the default.
  • Click Save once all relevant fields are filled out.
