This is a way to extend positive behavior reinforcement beyond school grounds. As part of the PBIS Rewards suite of apps, the free Parent App allows parents to view student point totals, number of referrals, items purchased with points, and upcoming events for which points can be used.
Once the parent downloads the app onto a smartphone, they can scan a QR code to activate a student in the app. This QR code is unique to each student and is provided to the parent via a letter from the school. The app confirms the QR code, allowing the parent to access their student’s point totals and progress as the school year goes along. The parent can recognize and encourage positive behavior at home based on the information available in the app.
The PBIS Rewards Parent App allows parents to track the progress and point totals of each of their children, even if they are attending different schools. Each school generates a unique QR code for each student, and once this code is scanned in the app, the parent can view the information for each of their children. The school can generate paper letters, emails, and/or text messages in order to connect parents with their students within the app.
Contact information for all teachers so parents can contact staff directly from the app
The parent cannot alter any of this information in any way. It is purely a reporting mechanism. For parents whose children have a CICO plan or receive referrals, push notifications can be turned on to keep parents updated in real time. Once parents are connected to their student within the app, they can generate an authorization code for their student to login to the Student App.
