This easy to edit presentation template will let you highlight key school year events by month for students, parents or staff. Great for updates, back to school nights, college planning presentations and more. Do not fall into the presentation abyss - grab a cheap and easy way to share milestones over a few months or over the course of an academic year.
A simple but effect transition also highlights the progression through the year as you change slides.
You get it in Powerpoint (.pptx) and a link to the same presentation on Google Drive that you will copy to your own drive.
This template is designed to help you set up a timeline to go over with students, parents or staff. All aspects are fully editable. You can change colors, fonts and such easily from the Master slide section on the View menu or by editing individual slides.
To easily change the years - use the Find and Replace tool under the Edit menu. Tip: start with the latest year (i.e. 2018 in this original template) and replace with 2019 or other year) first and then do the earlier year.
Want to change the background? Simply click background and change the color or upload an image. I suggest keeping it simple with a white background or a light, non-busy image.

Do not worry about the bar that overhangs the edge of the slides - that will not show when presenting or printing and ensures it runs edge to edge.
Limit information on your slide to 2-4 items that are key for that month. If you have a lot of details - add it to an additional sheet that can be printed and handed out or put up on a website. A presentation is not the tool for that much info.
This is not limited to high school - use this for any level in parent or staff presentations.
You can also use this as only a few months at a time. If you want to do a closer look at a quarter or semester - simply make a copy of the presentation and remove the months you do not need. You can also duplicate the month slide if you REALLY feel you need to add additional info or dates in one month.
Use the Make a Copy feature in Google Drive to make a copy of this template so you can easily edit it for your needs. If you keep this original template as it is here - it will make it easier to come back to later and update for a new presentation.
