Teachers in School Loop who are using lettered grading corresponding to different percentages need to send notifications to the Students and/or Parents informing them about anything related to the grades for the different courses. This article provides steps to send these types of communication from School Loop.
You are the Teacher of the course for which you want to send notifications.
There are 2 ways in which this can be accomplished:
- Teachers can make use of the Tracker functionality in School Loop and inform the parents and/or students about the same. Since each lettered grade would correspond to some percentage, Teachers can create a Tracker as per the percentage and that would create a set of students to whom any notifications or communications can be sent.
Eg: If you have created a lettered grade "M" which equals 50%, you can create a Tracker with the Grades filter exactly 50% as shown below:
After this, as per your selection of Students, Parents, Teachers, and/or Other Members, you will be able to send notifications via LoopMails to those people.
- Teachers can also download a Gradebook and then filter the Students as per the Grade requirement. Once filtered, they can send LoopMails only to those Students. Note that in this solution, the notification can be sent only to the Students and their Parents and not to anyone else.
Teachers can click on LoopMail > Sent and confirm that the email communication was sent:
