Must See Information

Easier Student Authorization Process

  • New Student Login Page- students no longer need to enter their school to login.
Student App Login

  • Single Sign-On now available for Clever, ClassLink and Google (if student emails are in the system).
  • Group and individual auth codes are available from the groups page.
Group Auth Codes
  • Generate an auth code that can turn the Student App into a scanning station.
Scan or Enter the Code
  • Admin can allow students to stay logged in to the student web portal based on the grade level.

Tier 2/3 Documentation

Staff members that have access to the student dashboard will be able to document Tier 2 and Tier 3 interventions right inside PBIS Rewards. Information that can be recorded will include: the date, tier level (1 or 2), a description and a file attachment (if need). Admin will also be able to see a student count based on the number of students in each tier in the Interventions dashboard of the Reports menu.

Custom Interventions

Star Rewards

Staff will be shown a star indicator on the staff web portal and on the app for positive actions that they have taken in the system, on a daily basis. One star will be show for staff that have logged in today, two stars will be shown if a point has been awarded to a student today, and three stars will be awarded for staff members that have reached their daily point goal (if the staff is untracked they will be shown the third star if they have rewarded students from a group).
