Student accounts getting "hacked"
The best solution is to encourage your students to change their password from their birthdate. They must do this in the student password with the password change tile.
Are you hearing about HAC having issues?
A word about the app- this is NOT the app that most students and parents like best. This app is the one developed by the creator of school and is the one that we are more certain works correctly. So please make sure you have them look for the specific name of this app to be sure they get the right one.
Dates in Blueprints!
Problem: Everyone is seeing assignments, even if they were only assigned to one section.
What Happened? You assign to everyone in Blueprint and go into shell course and assign to certain sections. The next time you sync, the "Everyone" line is back on the assignment.
Solution: In the blueprint, instead of choosing to assign to Everyone, choose assign to Blueprint. Then in the shell courses, go back into the assignment and assign to your section as you have always done.
Problem: The kids see all their assignments on the syllabus page (your home page) at the bottom. Can I get rid of that?
Solution: Yes! With the new update, you can edit your syllabus page (this should be your home page) and uncheck the box right below the content editor. Poof! All the assignments in the list are gone!
Emailing Students through eSchool- common issues
1- Attachments. It is best practice to put any attachments in Google and put a link to the attachment in the email you write. For some reason, attachments cause us lots of drama so links are the way to go.
2- Inappropriate Content(as deemed by our email filter):
This could be anything- some examples of things that have kicked back messages:
- Science lessons about the human body
- a font in an attachment that was coded as XXXL (it has a triple X in it)
If you get a kickback, check these things. If you need help, give me a holler!
