On the Departments tab, schools can define the different types of classes or areas in which classes are offered. This helps in the scheduling portion of the Campus product by organizing classes by department name. It is also useful for separating teachers into teaching departments. Teachers can be assigned to a department on the District Assignments tab. Users can search for courses by department and run schedule-related reports. In the Schedule Wizard, users may hide courses and load requests by department if needed.

This tool cannot be used to create district-wide departments.
