Student behavior management applications for K-12 schools and districts.

The Hero System

Hero benefits everyone

Hero is built for the school heroes. The teachers. The students. Those who inspire greatness. Track the good with the bad, and reinforce positive behaviors that have the potential to ripple through your school. Then, deliver your district office the data it needs to see how your culture is shifting - for the better.

students are heroes

When you encourage their positive behaviors and mitigate their not-so-good habits, students can become more.

teachers are heroes

Hero gives teachers the tools they need to motivate their students and push them to become heroes themselves.

administrators are heroes

Hero helps administrators see their top-performing students at a school, and also identify those who may need intervention.

Hero tackles these school challenges...

Incident Tracking + Referral Process Automation

Hero helps monitor all forms of student behavior. Good or bad, minor or major, you will always know what's happening on campus. Using any web browser, the Hero Mobile Scanning Solution, or your own Android & iOS devices, we allow you to spot heroes in your school and capture behavior where and when it happens. Keep accurate attendance records. Assign warnings and consequences automatically. We eliminate handwritten tardy slips, verbal warnings, and the worst of all, those 7-part referral forms that everyone despises. Use trend-oriented reporting to encourage improvement among your heroes every day, and share behavior data with your Student Information System, state reporting or parents.

Classroom Management Solutions

Hero is built to document incidents and recognize good behavior both inside the classroom and across campus. There's no additional installation necessary as data extends to every device and desktop, giving teachers easy access to their students' data. They can utilize information to track students individually or as a group. With Hero, all data flows back to your central database in real time, providing stakeholders instant visibility to student behavior. And the Hero Dashboard is valuable to teachers and administrators alike, providing at-a-glance visual reports of trends, top 10 lists, watch lists and much more.

Track Attendance For All Sorts of School Events

Hero helps track and manage attendance. But it's more than that. Ticket sales for an event, student eligibility, in/out timestamps for dances, field trips and any other event on or off campus - Hero utilizes its robust tracking features and translates it into a successful way to manage the various events that are part of a school. The Event Management module also aligns to the larger goal of recognizing positive behavior. Give the heroes among your student population access to exciting events through using their earned Hero points. The module can also be set up for use in your tutoring and media centers, tracking in/out movement and participation.

We offer the Android-based Hero Mobile Scanning Solution with built in barcode scanners that can read barcodes and perform student lookups in a fraction of a second. And if you prefer to have your teams access Hero from their iPhones, or any of the popular Android devices, we support that, too. We also support tablets with mobile-friendly browser-based student tracking. We have an array of options, giving you the tools to effectively and efficiently track behavior throughout your school.

Positive Behavior (PBIS) Program Support

Hero is designed to complement PBIS programs. Effectively and consistently tracking behaviors - whether they be positive or negative - helps support a PBIS program and effectuate cultural change. Accurate data helps tell a school what's happening among its population, and to identify the heroes among it. Hero tracks behavior in the classroom, the hallways and virtually anywhere on campus, all feeding into your overall behavioral program goals. Perfect for PBIS coordinators, Hero's interactive dashboard and reports assist with monitoring each aspect of a program.

  • "The system does exactly what it's supposed to do. It will reduce your tardies by at least 50%. September 12 is the first day implemented - we had 138 tardies that day. By November 20, we were averaging down to 8 to 9 tardies. It works."

    Walter Camper

    McClellan High School, Little Rock, AR

  • "Before, we had kids just standing in the hallways refusing to go to the class, just doing what they want to do. But after [Hero], and they saw us with the system, we had kids rushing, running to class!"

    Dewayne Boone

    Henderson Middle School, Little Rock, AR

  • "It has helped us decrease our tardies to where we'd have maybe a 100 kids per period, we're down to maybe 20. The kids know that it gets downloaded so fast, the reprimand is very quick. It's helped us clear the hallways and get our discipline under control, and get them into class where they need to be to study and move forward."

PlascoTrac is now Hero K12

For over a decade our company has evolved and so has the world of education. EdTech companies are working with schools and districts nationwide to improve student outcomes at all levels. This evolution requires companies operating in this market to become more and more focused, nimble, and dedicated. When we launched the new Hero product in January 2014, we found the name resonated. Hero became far more than a product. Hero became what we live, every day. Our customers, partners, and everyone we’ve met along the way have responded so well to the Hero brand, it’s humbling. To support our commitment to our current and future customers, we are building a new organization to focus solely on K-12 education. Effective November 1, 2014, we are known simply as Hero K12. And we couldn’t be more excited for the future.
