Create new category for student pull outs
As an elementary teacher I deal with students being pulled from my room for reading/resource/ELL/ Speech/OT/PT etc. It would be nice to be able to see these things in my schedule when planning curriculum. I've tried using the events idea but it doesn't work.

I agree that it would be helpful to see pull-out and push-in services. Every year I create a second template of my schedule which has skinny overlays on the left-hand side of the column with student initials and a short code for the teacher/class they're being pulled for. It's a handy reminder of who is where and when, and I have to refer back to that every time I plan in Planbook. The overlays can go over the top of multiple classes because we all know that students are not always pulled out for the same duration of a class. I do hope that this gets added!

I would also like my students' pull-outs with specialists to show on my lesson plans. The notes section simply adds one more place or page for me to look at during the day. I have also tried to use events, and that doesn't work for a busy elementary classroom. I need the pull-outs indicated right on my plans. Thanks!
I think this would be a waste when you can had into the notes session.
I would like to be able to have icons associated with Speech, ELL, Band, Orch, OT, PT, and GATE etc. to put on the class titles as a reminder that not all students will be in the classroom for a particular lesson/standard.
Either an icon, or perhaps a translucent block to lay over the class title.
