Nope! We have an automated system that moves the student into the new teacher/grade. You will want to follow the "Renewal Startup Check List" that shows you how to delete graduating students and to mark the rest with the "Needs New Teacher." With that set the students very first scan of the year, you will be prompted to ask them who their new teacher is.
Tap the new teacher to select then tap the "Update" button
You also have one additional option when renewing, you can choose to keep each students cumulative milage statistics (these are the feedback total miles displayed when they scan in) or set them all back to zero. All user statistics are maintained if you set it back to zero, the only thing we change is the feedback mileage.
