Schedule ISS student placements and notify those who need to know
In-school suspension is challenging to manage. Each time a student is assigned to ISS five to ten staff members in the school must be notified. In response, many of them will be required to submit assignments in a timely manner. A few other staff members are typically notified so they can better intervene with the child. ISS Manager handles the notifications.
In addition, assignments from teachers are often sent late. Often the time needed by the student to complete assigned work is much less than their stay in ISS. With idle time, students get restless and are more likely to cause problems. ISS Manager keeps track of assignments and facilitates follow-through.
ISS can be a perfect time for students to reflect and learn from their misbehaviors. ISS Manager includes sixty character education lessons which also are also designed to develop academic vocabulary. Select a lesson based upon the student’s offense or what will most benefit that individual’s growth.
