Things families hear

From Kickboard, there are 3 school updates. A behavioral update for Hannah. There are 35 behavior records for Hannah today. 16 positive, 7 corrective, No Neutral Behaviors. Hannah’s Points balance is 9 for today and 23 for the week so far. Great job with Bravery today!

“Behavior records” are teacher or administrator inputs that could be positive, corrective or neutral.

“Great job with Bravery today”. Kickboard randomly chooses one positive behavior to mention in order to congratulate the student.

As a Vice Principal of a K-12 school, I am constantly striving to identify and implement dynamic ways to promote family engagement. By connecting Amazon Alexa to Kickboard families are now able to interact with real-time, personalized data in a convenient and stimulating way.
