New to the SILS Concept?
SILS is an effective way to tell a student's story and to keep staff organized in support of that student. Basically it
is a constituent relations managment (CRM) system built specifically for students, teachers, and support staff from the
ground up. Find out how it can help your students and staff in this short video .
Featured Ideas To Help Your School
Reducing Detentions - Small consequences for small issues: This video explains how some schools use demerits as a fraction of
a detention and how SILS automates this for them. In this way, a small issue like a uniform violation can
carry a consequence but not an unduly heavy consequence. Demerits can be set up to trigger an automatic
detention after any threshold number of occurances. Actually, any type of log can be set up to automatically
trigger any other type of log. For an overview and details on how to set it up, watch this 4 minute video .
Private tags: This forthcoming video explains how to flag a student who has a special need but only do so for certain
staff members and not all staff members. So a common scenario might be that the dean needs to be aware of
which students are in special education. A group could be created and color coded so that any students in this
group will get a colorful tag placed on their profile page. If the group is made private, then only the
adults who are attached to the group will see the tag. For an overview and details on how to set it up, a video will be produced within days.
Disciplinarian Workflows: This video will explain all the features that help a dean or other disiciplinarian
stay organized and communicate with staff.
