Avoid having just one period in a half-day for teachers
When a teacher has lessons on a half-day, a high weighting ensures that the teacher will teach more than one period.
Optimisation of NTPs for teachers
In the 'Teachers | Master Data' window, you have entered values for maximum and minimum numbers of NTPs (Non Teaching Periods). Use this slide to control the level of compliance with the specified settings.
Avoid creating double NTPs for teachers
In addition to controlling single NTPs, you can give penalty points for each double NTP scheduled by the software during optimisation.
Respect lunch break for teachers
