You can change a single student’s homeroom teacher from within their student record.

 To assign a different homeroom teacher to a single student record
  1. On the Home screen, click Students.
  2. Double-click a student record.
  3. Click the Student tab.
  4. Click the  button in the Homeroom Teacher field. The Select Teacher dialog box displays.
  5. Select or add a new name, and click OK.

You can also change a homeroom teacher assignment for multiple students at once. There are two ways you can do it.

The first way uses the Search and Replace option. This is a mass change feature that searches for a teacher's name and replaces it with another teacher's name throughout the Headmaster database. For example, use this option if a teacher resigned during the course of the school year and you need to replace the teacher's name throughout all the records in which it occurs throughout the database.

 To change the Homeroom Teacher in multiple records
  1. On the File menu, select Mass Change.
  2. Double-click Students.
  3. Click Homeroom Teacher.
  4. Select Search and Replace.
  5. To select the teacher's name you want to change, click the Value to Change drop-down list.
  6. Click the New Value drop-down list, and select the new teacher's name.
  7. Click Change.
  8. Click OK.

 

The second way uses the Select Individual option. With this option, you can change a specific value for only the individuals that you select. For example, use this option if you need to move a few students out of one homeroom teacher's class into another.

 To change the Homeroom Teacher in selected records
  1. On the File menu, select Mass Change.
  2. Double-click Students.
  3. Click Homeroom Teacher.
  4. Select Select Individual.
  5. Click Select.
  6. Click the student’s name that you want to reassign to a new homeroom teacher, and click Add. To select more than one student, press and hold the Ctrl key on your keyboard and select multiple students.
  7. Click OK.
  8. Click the New Value drop-down list, and select the new teacher's name.
  9. Click Change.
  10. Click OK.
