Ending the School Year in Student Success
As the school year comes to a close, we recommend taking the following steps to ensure your students' data is up-to-date and ready for the team that will be supporting them next year. At the bottom of this page, you'll find a communication plan that includes a sample template and guidance on sharing this page with your team.
First, complete any interventions that you have started for students. You can easily do this by navigating to your My Plans page or notifications, where you can see all of the intervention plans you are responsible for updating. Any interventions that are not completed will show up as "In Progress" on the student's profile page until they are completed, and once the next school year starts you will not be able to update or add progress. Completing interventions and leaving notes about how a student progressed, even if a goal was not met, is a good way to ensure that the students' future teachers will have the information necessary to support them.
Clean up your groups. If you have any static groups that you will not need to reference next year, such as a Lunch Bunch or extracurricular group, you may want to delete them to have a clean slate for next year. If you would like to keep the groups for reference, you may want to add the school year to the title so you can tell that the group is not one that you need to reference regularly. Smart groups should continue to update once the new school year starts, but you may want to review the criteria you have set to decide if it will still be important to track next year. Learn more about groups here.
Log any supports you put in place for students before the end of the year. Support notes are tied to the current school year and are always available on a student's profile. If you are supporting a student in any way, such as a phone call home or an SEL check-in, you can log this support note now so that educators who visit the student's profile in the future can see what supports were provided.
Though student data (including academics, attendance, behavior, and SEL) will not be updated over the summer, you can continue to use Student Success when preparing for the new school year. To view previous year's data, you can use the year dropdown in the top right corner of a page to view snapshots of data from the end of that school year. If you have questions about this, please reach out to your team at Panorama, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you're a district or school leader hoping to share these recommendations with your team, you can use the email template below. This can be a great way to ensure you and your team are able to prepare your data in Student Success for the next school year, creating a smooth transition and ensuring continued student supports next year.
As we inch closer to the summer, I’m reaching out to share some next steps from the Panorama team to help you close out the school year in Student Success.
When the school year ends, Student Success will continue to show a snapshot of data from the end of the year. If you visit the platform over the summer, you’ll be able to review data from 2020-2021 and toggle back to previous years, but you will not see students' academic, behavior, or attendance data update. Visit this article on Panorama Academy to learn more about how you can effectively wrap up the 2020-2021 school year in Student Success.
If you have any questions, you can always reach out to me or our support team at Panorama: email@example.com.
