When to create a School Staff Indicator?

  • You want staff members to report offline activity so it can be tracked on SchooLinks.
    • Ex: Have students created strategies to finance college costs?

There are two types on School Staff Indicators

  1. Yes/No Indicator - Counselors will indicate if a student has (yes) or has not (no) completed an activity
    1. Ex: Yes - this student has opted in to our summer melt program
  2. Count Indicator - Counselors will indicate a certain number of actions that have taken place
    1. Ex: The student has had detention more than 5 times this semester

When to create a SchooLinks Indicator?

  • When you want to see students' completion of an activity on SchooLinks.
    • Ex: How many students have or have not completed the Find Your Path assessment? OR
    • Ex: How many students have viewed at least 5 college profiles?
