Renaming Primary classes

Postby harding6038 » Sat Jan 16, 2016 8:39 am

I have some classes in Primary that I combine, the Valiant 10 & 11 Boys and Valiant 10 & 11 Girls, last year I combined them and renamed them but this year I am unable to do so. I can combine all girls in a class and all the boys but I have the girls listed under Valiant 11 and boy Valiant 10 because I am unable to rename them. Has this function changed? I have one other class that I combine and it did let me rename but I wasn't separating boys and girls in that class.

In situations like this, I like to start with the Handbook. Handbook 2: 11.7 says "In a ward with few children, Primary leaders may combine two or more age-groups into one class." I notice it says "age group". That may or may not include a gender group.

On the other hand, the same section indicates that Primary can be combined into a single class if the numbers are that small.

We'll have to see if the developers indicate what was in the "business rules" handed down from above.

Because you are using two standard classes (even though you have mixed and shuffled the children) they cannot be renamed.
