Tardies and other minor incidents are a major pain to deal with effectively. Writing up minor incidents manually burns through instruction time and creates a ton of work for the front office, and it can be a nightmare for principals to make sure consequences are actually served. Hero automates the way you handle minor discipline and tardiness—which makes them, well, a minor annoyance.
Hero lets you check in tardy students with a quick scan of their ID badge. This helps you get them processed and back to where they need to be—in class.
No more handwritten passes! Hero can automatically print passes for students when they’re scanned in, so they show up to class with minimal disruption.
Just like a report card gives a student feedback about their academics, Hero gives students feedback about their behavior—and shows them what the consequence will be.
Tardiness and absences don’t only mess with your budget, but are bad for school culture. A tardiness program with Hero can reduce tardies by 50-80%.
Hero helps you track all kinds of minor incidents like these:
Any student can have a bad day. Minor disciplinary infractions aren't the end of the world, but it's important to get a handle on minor behavioral problems and provide appropriate consequences to try to redirect behaviors before they escalate into major disciplinary incidents. Hero gives you the tools to intervene early, which can make your school a better place.
What if you were able to build parent outreach into your progressive discipline policy? With Hero, you can. That means that when a student is tardy or is written up for something at school, you can automatically send a parent letter home via email. This gives parents the opportunity to know what's happening at school and help you redirect behavior.
With handwritten tardy passes and slips, it's easy for students to slip through the cracks. When you implement your discipline policy in Hero, disciplinary actions will be clear, and consequences will be consistent and fairly applied. Students respond better to a clearly defined discipline policy, and deserve to be treated fairly and without subjectivity or favoritism.
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.
