To prepare for the upcoming school year, a little bit of planning will help ensure that your Hero relaunch will be as successful as can be. Here are the steps we suggest you take:

  1. Train – schedule time for your Hero “team of champions” to provide refresher training for your faculty and staff. Need training help? This landing page will walk you through all the training options that we provide.
  2. Launch – Build the hype! Create bulletin boards, announcements, and fresh incentives for students and faculty.
  3. Monitory & Reward – provide regular feedback and shout-outs to teachers, students and parents through incentives and Hero.
  4. Visualize your Hero relaunch timeline and schedule your teacher-rollout date, student roll-out assembly, parent roll-out date, go-live date and 1st Hero celebration date.
  5. Familiarize yourself with the exciting new features that we’ve rolled out for the 2018-2019 school year by reading this blog post.
