2019 SchoolPoint Release

At the beginning of 2019 a new version of SchoolPoint was released. This release has been one of our biggest releases yet and is only phase one of our 2019 plans.

SchoolPoint is extending from a Course Selection program to encompass the whole careers decision making and planning process.
This includes the course selection tools as you already know and use and now a career package and SchoolPoint STREAM.

A new cleaner interface for the student portal has been added, this will already be using your school colours and crests.

SchoolPoint Careers:

  • Editable Student Details (by students and caregivers)
  • Including personal phone/email and drivers license information
  • Online CV and Cover letter builders (PDF and Word)
  • Capture Values, Strengths, Skills and Goals.
  • Gateway and Trades enrolment
  • Halls of Residence/Referrals system
  • More features to come

SchoolPoint STREAM:

  • Post messages to students dashboard
  • Specify targets by Subject, KAMAR Group, Year Level, Staff or full School messages
  • Students can Like and Comment on messages (moderated)
  • Download the mobile app for alerts and notifications
  • Create conversations (chat) with Students and their caregivers - and receive notifications from the app

Pathway - Goals and Tasks:

This area has been extended to encourage Students to more actively set and complete their goals and now Staff and Caregivers can comment around each goal.
More reporting has been added in to export goals, tasks and conversations.

 

Timetable Switching:

An issue some schools have encountered in the past has been student's logging in at the start of the year to see their new courses.
We have automatically hidden this from their view to stop this. We encourage schools to turn off the TT/Attendance screen in the KAMAR Portal during this time also.

We have now given you the option to change which TT/year students are selecting courses for (In the settings area) and separately you can toggle which year all of your reports are generated for.

This is in the admin now.

 

How to Update:
