Want to Give Points to an Entire House?

You can award Points to a House without the Points going to a particular student, by creating "students" with your House names and placing these "students" in the appropriate House roster.

The Houses will show up as a Roster on your Points screen, and Points can be awarded to the "House Student" on behalf of the House itself.

You can also create custom behaviors on your Behavior Rubric specifically for awarding points to Houses, for example, a Point for a House vs. House "Tug-of-War," and make these points worth 100, 200, 300 points!

You first need to create the House as a student, then add that "student" to the appropriate House roster. Learn how below!

If your school is syncing with Clever/ClassLink, contact us to set up this option.

Create the House as a Student

From Setup > Students click on +New and add the student with the House name.

  1. Go to Setup

  2. Choose "Students"

  3. Add a New Student

  4. Name Your Student after a House

  5. Repeat until all Houses are added as Students

Giving your "House Student" the first name of "1." will keep them at the top of your House list.

We also encourage placing all "House Students" in a grade your school doesn't use – this way, if you award Points to an entire grade, Houses won't earn extra Points.

Add the House "Student" to Your House Roster

Select the student icon from the Roster screen and add students from the "Add Students" dropdown.

  1. From the Setup screen, choose "Rosters"

  2. Click the "Add or remove students" button on the House Roster

  3. Go to the Add Students screen and Select the Grade in which you placed your "House Students"

  4. Click the House Student button & Add the "Student" to the House Roster

  5. Repeat for each of your Houses

You'll then have a student button for the Houses in their House Rosters, but you can always search for the House too, just like you do for students!
