Hey ScootPad Squad! Thanks for making the 2014-2015 school year such an awesome experience. As the new year approaches, here are some helpful action items for admins and teachers to get their new classrooms started on ScootPad.  We’ve compiled a checklist for each of you to consider as you transition to new school year.

In addition to these new features, we have scheduled FREE weekly webinars to help both admins and teachers get ready for Back-to-School.  Here is our schedule:
Teachers: Every Wednesday @ 1 PM PST and Thursday @ 3 PM PST
Admins: Every Wednesday @ 10 AM PST

Admins:
We’ve made some dramatic improvements to student data management this summer to help you take care of the yearly changes.  We understand that a new school year means new classrooms, new students, old students, new teachers, and etc. To help you prepare for these changes, we have created features that will archive all data, De-Dup (delete duplicate accounts), and improve bulk student upload.

Here are a few suggested steps you can take to prep for the new school year:

  1. Un-Enroll All Students – Student Historical Mastery Report data will remain.
  2. Delete All Classrooms – This will un-enroll students and delete classrooms. Historical Mastery Report data will remain.
  3. Create New Classrooms
  4. Delete Unwanted student accounts – Admins can view all students at a school and delete accounts that have never logged in or students that are not at your school/district this year
  5. De-Dup Students – This feature allows you to identify student accounts that may be duplicates (either through the bulk upload process or created by teachers)
  6. Bulk-Enroll students – into new classrooms or Print Class Codes and distribute to teachers for self enroll

Following these steps from your admin account will ensure your school rosters are cleaned up and prepared for the 2015-2016 school year.  Don’t forget to register for some free webinars, view step-by-step instructions, or start a Live Chat with us!

Teachers:
Teachers have two options when preparing for next school year and essentially can follow the same steps as admins, but on a smaller scale.  Teachers can now conveniently clean out and use their existing classroom, or start fresh with a new classroom and new students with less mouse clicks.

Clean out existing classroom and use it next year:

  1. Un-enroll students – This will remove your old students from your classroom so you can enroll your new class
  2. Change the name of your classroom
  3. Enroll new students using: Existing Student Accounts, New Student Accounts, Google Accounts, Schoology, LMS/SIS
  4. Change the Learning Path (grade level) of your classroom

Clean Slate – Delete your old classrooms and start fresh:

  1. Un-enroll students
  2. Delete classroom
  3. Create new classroom
  4. Enroll new students using: Existing Student Accounts, New Student Accounts, Google Accounts, Schoology, LMS/SIS

Following one of these options will ensure your classroom is ready to go for the 2015-2016 school year. Don’t forget to register for some free webinars, view step-by-step instructions,  or start a Live Chat with us!

Cheers!
