Why aren't we getting our notification emails?

If you expect to get notification emails from your Edclick product but you're not getting them, it is probably due to one of two causes.

  • Discipline Manager: Since lots of discipline referrals can result in lots of notification emails, some schools opt to have them turned off. If yours are turned off and you would like them on, let us know at support@edclick.com.
      
  • All other Edclick applications: Most likely, your notification emails are being blocked by a spam filter in your mailer or in your network. The solution is to put your Edclick address into your "whitelist" of addresses to never send to spam.
    • All your notification emails will come from the same address. It is in the form website@<myEdclickAddress>. Examples are website@www.sscisd.net and website@ccisd.edclick.com. These are the addresses to put on the whitelist.
       
    • To determine if your mailer or network is filtering the messages: Try testing with an address that is outside your school such as Google or Yahoo mail.  If the notification email goes to the outside address but not to your school address, it is likely a spam filtering problem.
       
    • If this all sounds like tech nonsense and you just want your notification emails, contact us at support@edclick.com and we'll help you solve the problem.

We want to improve parental involvement. Can you help?

Yes. The best way to keep parents involved with their child's education and with your school is to provide parents with useful, actionable information. School Site Manager is designed to make it easy to get timely information onto your website quickly and easily. One of the most useful fields on the course section pages for parents is How Parents Can Help. Encourage your faculty to help parents help the students by providing specific suggestions.

Discipline Manager, Intervention Manager and Tutoring Manager help keep parents involved by sending specific emails about their child's events and issues to keep parents in the loop.

School Site Manager includes a Newletter feature that can be used to push information to parents about recent accomplishments and upcoming opportunities. Each newsletter automatically maintains an archive of past issues as well as a subscription list that provides self-service subscribe or unsubscribe.

School Site Manager also has blogs associated with staff members, course sections, departments and extracurriculars. One of the handy but often unappreciated uses of a blog is as a specific news channel. For example, a blog for an extracurricular such as the chess club or gymnastics team, is a great place to summarize the results of each competition. Keep parents and fellow students informed and engaged with news specific to a student's activities.

Parent Tips provides useful information on a daily basis. Parent Tips can be used to put a new tip on the website or email a new tip to parents every week day. Not only will parents receive useful parenting information in easily digestable chunks, but they are reminded of the service your school is doing for the students every day.

Can Edclick bulk load photos?

Yes. Do you want to upload photos of all your faculty and staff? What about photos of all your students?

We can help! Contact us at support@edclick.com and let us know what you want to do. We will help get it done.

For example, Discipline Manager, Testing Manager and Intervention Manager customers often want to have photos of all their students loaded onto the system. Send us a disk of images indexed by student ID and we can probably take care of that for you.

What is the clip art image collection?

Are you putting a profile on your website and wish you had an image to go with it? Well, you do!

To select one for use, click the View, approve, select or delete photos link, then click the View clip art collection link. Use them whenever and wherever on your website you wish.

What is MyCalendar and MySite?

MySite is a way to create a custom view of a school website to an individual's needs. For example, MyCalendar can be defined from the MySite page.

For example, student may choose to create a custom MyCalendar that includes the section calendars with lesson plans for the courses she is taking. She can also add athletics teams she's participating in or following as well as clubs and other extracurriculars. A MyCalendar custom calendar makes one's most important events easier to see.

Parents and staff are aslo welcome to create custom MyCalendar pages.

Are there options for how lesson plans are presented to parents?

Yes. The default presentation is on the section calendar. Lesson plans are posted automatically. However, if you have created lesson plans into the future, you may choose to click a link to post each individually.

Another option is a lesson plan view that shows summaries of all sections in a department or a list of sections, all displayed on one page. Since some are large and some are small, the large ones are clipped until the user rolls a mouse over it. At that time, it expands to show the whole plan.

Whichever view is used, only the public information is shown. Private information, such as bell ringers, review questions, reflections on how the class went and the classtime schedule are not displayed publicly.

I see that I can add a lot of information about a class section, but I teach several sections of the same class. Do I have to re-enter all of that information for each section?

No. School Site Manager has two capabilities to save you work in this regard.

  • You can direct School Site Manager to selectively copy anything - links, files, calendar events and so on - from one section to another. This is handy for sharing among several teachers in the same department with similar but not identical course content.
  • You can declare sections to be identical. When changes are made to a course section, they are also made automatically to all other sections that are declared identical to the first.

Can School Site Manager help me manage my classroom?

Yes. School Site Manager provides many tools for managing your classroom and for improving communication with students and their parents. School Site Manager includes:

  • Hyperlink management for each class section to reference and enrichment sites
  • Uploadable files for each section, often used as a repository for all handouts
  • A dynamic calendar for each class section including not just one-day events such as tests, but also multi-day spans such as the duration of major portions of a course or the span from assignment to due date of a term project.
  • A Syllabus Builder option for creating a calendar of daily lesson plans, then reusing it for other sections and other semesters
  • Frequently Asked Questions for each section to help students at any time
  • Photo galleries attached to a section
  • Information about class policies, grading, requirements, objectives and so on.

 With School Site Manager your school Web site becomes so functional and so easy to maintain that it can serve as your school's information hub. All this information not only benefits the student but helps parents keep abreast of class plans and events. Better communication among teachers, students and parents leads to better learning.

What does School Site Manager do?

School Site Manager helps you create, maintain and manage a highly functional school Web site with a minimum of effort.

School Site Manager has provided for the typical kinds of information a school Web site needs: information about departments, courses, sections, teachers, extracurriculars, calendars of events, the PTA and announcements. It also provides for functions such as scheduling cafeteria menus and reserving facilities. It includes fun functions such as photo galleries and student profiles that anyone can create. It makes it easy to manage text pages such as school descriptions, policies and student handbook. Finally, it makes it easy to create and update other miscellaneous pages you may require.

School Site Manager keeps you in control. Anyone can create calendar events, photo galleries, profiles or announcements, but they appear only with administration approval. Teachers and coaches are authorized to maintain their own course and extracurricular information, and it's as easy as filling out Web forms. The development and maintenance bottleneck is gone.

What was School Site Manager designed to do?

School Site Manager was originally designed to fix the most common school site problems. Often, a site starts out well but, since it's too difficult to maintain, the information on the site grows outdated. Also, a site might start with a functional, professional design, but when many people with limited skill make changes, the site soon becomes like a crazy quilt of ideas with no coherence. The cure? It takes three things:

  1. Make information easy to enter and update.
  2. Enable the people with the most information and the strongest motivation to enter information.
  3. Control the system with simple approval processes and with automatic design enforcement so the right information appears in the right design form.
