Visit the Settings page to begin creating your rules and settings for Schoolrunner and open the "Dashboards" category. This determines what information appears on your various dashboards throughout your site. Our traffic-light system helps you create goals and standards that are reflected on your dashboards.
Click on the pencil icon that appears next to your setting for "Attendance %" column and determine what percentage will designate good (green), fair (yellow), bad (red) and missing (stripes). The column to the right represents how this will look on your student and staff dashboards.
Next, do the same for "Daily Cash Average" column if this relates to your school’s needs. Select the color from the "Add New Rule" section and enter in the value. Use the green plus sign to add the next rule for your cash settings.
Use "Demerits Earned This Period" to establish demerit standards for your school.
The "Detentions" column helps you set goals and standards for detentions at your school. These visual clues help you quickly identify which students have earned more detentions and may require additional behavioral intervention.
The "Failing" column does the same for establishing how many courses a student can be failing at a time:
The "GPA" column gives you a way to quickly identify students whose GPA has fallen below an acceptable level, as shown below:
The "Lunch Detention" dashboard column allows you to determine standards for acceptable numbers of lunch detentions, if your school uses them.
Most Recent Calls
Using the "Most Recent Calls" column allows you to quickly identify which students are experiencing an increase in calls home.
Out of School SuspensionsThe "Out of School Suspensions" column shows you the acceptable number of OSS days.
The "Unexcused Absences" column allows you to assign a number value to the amount of acceptable, fair, and unacceptable unexcused absences.
Once your dashboard settings have been created, you will be able to view the information most important to you and your teachers on the student and staff dashboards. Here, you can see problem areas quickly, as well as easily reward students that have achieved great attendance, academic, and behavioral goals.
