Best way to switch teachers midway through semester
We had a new teacher who was here for about a month and then took medical leave. At the time, I didn't know it was going to continue the rest of the semester and didn't add the sub in as a co-teacher. Now this teacher has resigned for medical reasons and the sub is taking over her classes. I discovered last week the sub has been logging in as the teacher since the beginning. (Yeah, my fault I didn't fix this sooner.)

What is the best way to switch the class over to the sub? I want the sub's name to show as the teacher name on report cards next week. Under Edit Section, I tried adding the sub as the lead teacher and removing the original teacher. But I got a warning about losing Gradebook data. I briefly considered editing the name of the short-term teacher, but I hate to do that.

Any suggestions? TIA.

Jane, on the sections screen for this course,  I think you can remove the sub as the co-teacher and then change the lead teacher to the sub.

   
Yes, you can switch the teacher, but I got a warning that I would lose that teacher's Gradebook if I deleted the teacher. That concerns me this close to the end of the semester. I think I'm going to temporarily rename the teacher account until after the end of the semester. That way, the new teacher's name will appear on the stored grades. Thanks.
