Notes are an extremely effective way for you to communicate with each other securely about student progress.
To get started, you will want to first search the student you're wanting to create a Note for. To do this, just type the student's name in the search bar at the top of the page.
Then, on the Student Card, click on the Notes icon on the left side of the page. Notice the number in the red box next to the word Notes. This tells you the number of existing notes a student has on file.
You can take notes for RTI, TST, classroom behaviors, or any other academically relevant purpose. When you are finished with the information you would like to share with your team, you can choose to make that visible to Everyone (meaning everyone who has access to this student) or Groups. If you choose Just Me, this Note will only be visible to you.
If you choose Groups, you will be allowed to search for and choose the Group in the next search box.
The information that is shared with that selected group will only be visible to members in that group. Parents and Guardians could potentially see those records as well, if they are requested.
You can also now Tag your Note. To do this, just click in the Select Tags box and choose a tag from the list. Once you have selected your tag(s), you can click off of the list and the tag(s) will be listed in the box. If you need to remove a tag, you can click the X beside each tag.
Once you have tagged your Note, you can choose to insert a timestamp by clicking the button at the top right of the Note titled Insert Timestamp.
When you are finished, click Save to save your note.
