Hands-on, cohort-based workshops designed to help you build stronger, more strategic elementary schedules

Elementary Scheduling Academy

Jumpstart your scheduling efforts and join DMGroup's Elementary Scheduling Academy to learn how to build your best-ever school schedule in a fraction of the time!

The Elementary Scheduling Academy is a dynamic, three-session workshop designed to help district and school leaders build better elementary schedules quickly and easily.

Using DMSchedules for Elementary Schools scheduling software and guided by our scheduling experts, you will apply scheduling best practices to craft highly effective and easily customizable strategic elementary schedules.

The Academy is ideal for:

  • New principals preparing schedules for the first time

  • Principals looking to learn more about scheduling best practices

  • Schedulers seeking new approaches to solve scheduling challenges

  • District leaders focused on curriculum and instruction and elementary education

How it Works

We use our field-tested approach to build best-in-class elementary school schedules based on decades of experience with school leaders nationwide.

  • Intensive hands-on work: We believe that learning by doing is the best way to learn. Using DMSchedules, each participant will build their own school schedule.

  • DMSchedules for Elementary Schools License: Each participant will be issued a 1-year license with full access to DMSchedules for Elementary Schools scheduling software to create, manage and optimize their school schedules at no extra charge.

  • Peer network: The academy is designed to engage participants in discussion and share ideas across districts and schools. You will meet other like-minded school administrators with whom to share challenges and lessons learned.


The cost is $3,500 per school. The price includes the academy and 1-year software license for DMSchedules for Elementary Schools and schedule creation support services.
