The School Standards tree is used to import Common Core State Standards, New York State Standards, and/or to create unique standards specific to the school. Elementary schools use this feature to create their electronic report card.
Where to Start
Find your School Standards in Course Settings on the School Standards page.
Import Common/State Standards
Selecting Import Standard(s) gives the user the option to import Common Core State Standards and New York State Standards. Click the drop-down menu for more options.
You also have the option to import Banked Standards or District standards. District standards will import a school standards tree from another school in your district.
Check-off the standards you would like to add to the School Standards Tree. Selecting a folder will automatically select all the standards contained within the folder.
To choose individual standards, open the folder by pressing the + sign. This will display all standards within the folder. You can click on more than one standard at a time. After the desired selections are made click on import selected standards. Once all standards are imported, do not forget to save changes on the Tree Options.
Import Custom Standards
You can also import custom standards that are unique to your school. Start by creating a New Folder and entering the title of the folder. If you are creating an electronic report card, you may want to name the folders according to the subject area. For example, Reading, Writing, or Math.
Create a custom standard by selecting New Standard, entering the Standard Name and Standard Description. These standards can also reflect the subcategories on the report card. For example, "Demonstrates an understanding of mathematical concepts".
Delete a standard or folder of standards by clicking the red Delete icon.
Deleted a standard or folder by mistake? You'll find it in the Recycle Bin folder. Note that standard folders cannot share the same name, even if one is in the recycle bin.
