We’ve been using a paper-based notification system for years to document behavioral and academic issues with students. It’s involved lots of paper and email and too many people.
After an amazing workshop with Brent Coley, I realized two Google Suite plugins he showcased could simplify lots of things with our process.
The add-ons are autoCrat and copyDown. Now when teachers need to notify a student, their parents, and their faculty adviser…they just complete and submit a Google form. Emails are sent to all concerned parties and a pdf copy is saved to a folder in Google Drive.
While wrangling spreadsheets to my will, I got over a major hurdle thanks to this tip from benlcollins.com. Looks to be an amazing resource!
