The {{WikiProject Schools}} template adds an article's talk page to Category:WikiProject Schools articles and its subcategories. Please place this template onto relevant articles' talk pages. This template should be transcluded and not substituted (using {{subst:}}) because it employs conditional code. Transclusion also allows easy updating of all of the Project's talk pages without having to edit thousands of pages.

The template also employs several optional data field parameters as described below. For an example of how the template will appear under various parameter circumstances, please see Template:WikiProject Schools/Examples.

Parameters legend

WikiProject Schools banner template parameters
Parameter Accepted
class: FA Book The Wikipedia 1.0 Extended Assessment Scale values, or if blank this will produce a value of Unassessed. The values to the left are links to the categories they place articles in when assigned, for definitions of each class skip to the next section.
 FL  Draft
 A  Disambig
 GA  Redirect
 B  File
 C  Category
 Start  Template
 Stub  Portal
 List Project
importance: Top The Wikipedia 1.0 Topic Importance Scale values; the NA value should be used for all non-article pages (files, redirects, templates, categories, disambiguation pages, etc.), or if left blank this will produce a status of Unknown importance. The values to the left are links to the categories they place articles in when assigned, for definitions of each importance level skip to the section below.
needs‑infobox: yes / no Answer yes if the article needs an infobox so it will be automatically added to Category:School articles without infoboxes or no if the correct infobox template is already used
yes / no Enable/disable automatic inclusion in project maintenance categories. All values except no are interpreted as yes.
small: yes / no Answer yes if the template needs to be smaller and lined up vertically on the side of the talk page
auto: yes / stub / inherit / length Sets the method by which the auto-assessment bot will attempt to rate the article. Stub looks for stub templates in the article's wikicode and only rates articles when one is found; inherit copies the values from other WikiProject banner templates on the talk page (oldest first); length applies a crude formula to guess the quality based simply on the size of its wikicode. Set to yes to try all methods and leave blank to disable auto-assessment altogether.
listas: plain text Manually set the article's sortkey (name by which it's alphabetized in categories and lists
move: plain text If specified, provides a link to move the page to place specified by parameter. This parameter should be the name that the page should be moved to without the namespace. So, for the talk page of "School Name" the parameter would be "move=School Name (Municipality, Region/State)" (e.g. For an article named Council High School (Idaho), specify the parameter move=Council High School (Council, Idaho))
info: plain text Notes on the reasoning behind the given assessment (Remember to sign with ~~~~)
