Students learn how to behave at school, but they learn at home too. And getting entire communities — families, teachers, and students — on the same page is the most productive way to shape a student's growth. As a tool for community engagement, Hero allows teachers to deliver real-time communications to families, who can then support that messaging consistently at home. Students (and their families) are able to see individual performance, promoting more positive behavior. By bridging the communication gap between school and home, educators can get more people participating in a student’s success.
Hero brings next-level visibility to school-wide behavior programs. Administrators set behavior goals, which students and families see in the form of individual progress charts. Students (and their families) can see where they stand in the context of the school-wide goals. And milestones help motivate and encourage students along the way.
Open the lines of communication between school and home—and no one else. In Hero, student behavior conversations are kept private and are visible only by the administrator, teacher, and family. Even the parent/guardian's account setup is done with security measures in place. Schools issue their own "keys" for parents to set up their individual portals, ensuring that the accounts are secure, right from the beginning.
With Hero's student app, students see their points and rewards in real time, use their Hero passport to check in to events (or detentions), look up their schedules, and even see a record of their behavior actions to see their progress. This gives students a stream of instant feedback on their behavior, and the app can even push notifications about detentions or goals that the student has achieved.
Reach families in real time with push notifications from the Hero app (or emails, if they prefer) so they are always aware of what's happening with their student's behavior. From there, the parent/guardian can ask questions, see records of their student's behavior, and get advice on how to intervene. This also lets families bring school conversations into the home—helping to reinforce what’s being taught at school.
More engaged families result in higher performing students. By using Hero to bridge the gap between families and the classroom, school leaders are paving the way to student success.
To say teachers are "busy" would be an understatement. With Hero, teachers can initiate meaningful dialogue with families without adding mountains of paperwork to their already busy schedules.
When you give families an easy way to get engaged, they can help support the behavior initiatives you're trying to get across in school—at home. Not just the bad stuff, but the good stuff, too.
Give students a sense of where they fit in—big picture—with your school-wide behavior initiatives. When they can see their points values, they take responsibility for their own behavior.
