How do I create a new semester?

A Semester in your Chalk account is the time period where you are teaching the same students the same subjects. This may differ from school to school in what they are called or how they are set up, but to make it easiest for you, you'll want to pick the beginning and end dates that you're teaching your same group of students the same subject. 

There are two options when adding a semester to Chalk. You can either create a new semester with no information, or reuse a past semester which will copy a previous semester's classes, timetable and optional content
