Welcome, or welcome back! Each year, unless otherwise requested, we clear all data from your LiveSchool site. This means all transactions, rosters, and students are no longer there, and Student/Parent accounts have been reset. If you're new to LiveSchool, your account is a blank slate! Either way, use this article to get everything up and running for a successful kick-off with LiveSchool!
Behavior Rubric and Rewards
The key to the successful utilization of LiveSchool is a foundation based on your school culture goals! Make sure to check out our guides on building a school-wide Behavior Rubric, What is a Behavior Rubric?, Create a Rubric Your Team Loves, and Organize Your Rubric, along with our Rewards Resources.
A link will be shared with you via email. It will take you to your account and you'll be prompted to complete a few first steps. It will be helpful to have the following items on hand:
Start Dates and End Dates for your school year
Emails of your 3 to 5 Site Leaders
Student CSV file with First Name, Last Name, and Grade
Staff CSV file with First Name, Last Name, and Email
If you typically have a teacher or staff member complete your site setup, make sure you've given them Admin access to the site.
Clicking the link for launch that was shared with you via email, you will first be asked to log in and then you should see the following message. Upon logging in you will be asked for your start date and end date. Enter them here and select Next.
Next, you’ll be prompted to invite any Site Leaders you want to add this year, by entering their email addresses.
Only those with Admin permissions will be able to complete this step. To give someone Admin permissions you can follow these steps. If there is a Site Leader you want to be removed, reach out to us at email@example.com!
Make sure to select Send Invite to add a Site Leader. When all Site Leaders have been added click Next.
Once you've selected Next, a Launch Countdown will appear on your screen. This indicates how long you have until your indicated start date. If you want to practice with staff prior to your first day with students, you'll want to complete this step ahead of time.
