Can you add as attributes 'Grade Level' to create a section?
I help a lot because it could promote students from one year to another

Yes, this is necessary!

We're hoping to have this implemented by the end of December.

I was going to add a question along these lines, since I don't understand the functionality of "grade levels".

What is the drawback of creating the classic grade level - students grouping? (assigning students to a grade) then you can also assign courses to those grades, etc, and as Tom suggests, you can then promote students to the next term/year etc.

Hi xris_xcess,

The only issue is that we haven't written these rather fundamental features yet. We are working on it right now.

Thanks Tom Hoffman, that solved my question.

You can add levels to courses in 2.8, which are inherited by sections. They still don't DO much though.
