Coursework submissions will be tracked for all tasks that have Dropbox or Google coursework submissions enabled. After a task deadline has passed, all students who have not submitted their coursework will be included within this digest.
This new digest will include a summary of students who have received behaviour notes in the past week. Behaviour notes will be tracked for teachers' homeroom students. This digest will also flag Exceptional and At-Risk students. Once a student has received three or more positive behaviour notes they will be included within the “Exceptional” section. Similarly, if a student has received three or more negative behaviour notes they will be included within the “At-risk” section. Behaviour notes will only be tracked for a selected academic term. This digest will only be available as a weekly digest.
The new curriculum digest will provide teachers and administrators with a weekly summary of newly created units for the past week. Only classes that the teacher or administrator are members of will be included within this digest.
