  • The SchoolCity team will aim to start the 2024-2025 school year in each district’s instance 1 week prior to the school start date on each district’s website.
  • If you would like a different start date, please submit a support ticket, with your preferred dates.
  • For your district’s internal planning:
    • Identify which District tab assessments you plan to copy forward to the ‘24-’25 school year. Will these assessments need revision?
    • Consider creating any Pre/Post versions at this time.
    • Note that publishing is the trigger that schedules assessments in SchoolCity. Districts cannot publish any 2024-25 assessments until after the 2024-25 roster has been loaded and the active school year in SchoolCity is set to 2024-2025. (Copying or authoring for review and troubleshooting is fine.)

Star Assessments

  1. Some Star reports are designed to be used during the current school year. After students have finished their last Star Assessments for the 2023-2024 school year, we suggest running the reports listed here.
  2. View the Star Toolkit (page 8) for end-of-year reporting advice.

Star CBM

  1. Learn about Star CBM Data and review end-of-year progress
  2. Save a PDF or screen capture of the screening comparison tab or the last goal progress graph for students if needed since these views can’t be accessed for previous school years.
  3. Consider how you’ll use new options this fall, like Sight & High-Frequency Words and Encoding measures, listed under Getting to Know the Available Measures.

Star Phonics

  • To capture data based on current enrollment and class structure, we recommend saving or printing class- or grade-level reports after students have tested and before the school year wraps up.
  • The school year start date for all Star Phonics users is August 1. Assessments taken before August 1 in a given year appear in reports for the old school year, while those taken on or after August 1 are in reports for the new school year.
  • At the beginning of a new school year, administrators can set assessment windows (timeframes), add or edit scope and sequences for a school or the district. District administrators can make changes for all schools; school administrators can make changes for their school only.

Practice and Instruction

Accelerated Reader

  1. Review the Record Book & Goals (for K-2) or run Goals Met Report (grades 3+) before the school year ends. These reports will help you gain insights and celebrate wins as you head into summer and plan for next year.
  2. Reading Snapshots are a great way to share this school year’s reading achievements for the district, school, grade, or class level. You can create Reading Snapshots in a couple of clicks and share them on your website.

  • Rostering through Renaissance, Clever or Classlink: The student’s grade level will be promoted when the new school year starts and rosters are updated in Freckle.
  • Rostering manually through Freckle: Grade levels will not be promoted at the beginning of the school year automatically. We do have a way for you to make this change by using the “Update Class Grades” feature on the rosters page. On the roster page a teacher can click on the gear icon in the upper right corner of a roster. In the drop-down menu they can select the new grade level and click save.
  • Rostering by bulk CSV upload in Freckle on the Admin Dashboard: The new CSV upload will need to include the updated grade levels and rosters. Once the new upload is completed the student’s grade level and rostering will update immediately.

Adaptive Levels

  • We do not clear or reset any student adaptive levels. Students will not need to retake pretests for the new school year. Students’ coin totals will follow them to the next school year as well. If desired, teachers can choose to reset math/ELA levels from the Levels reports.

Hiding past assignments

  • Assignments created before a cut-off date in the 2023/2024 school year will be “hidden” automatically during the summer prior to back-to-school. Communications will be sent closer to the summer about the exact cut-off date when the assignments will be moved. Teachers can view the hidden assignments by changing the Time Period in the drop-down on the Assignments page.

Admin Dashboard

  • The filters on the administrator dashboard default to the most recent July 1 through today. This means that on July 2, the report dashboards will show the “upcoming school year.” It will appear blank because students will not have practiced. However, users can simply change the filters to view past data.

Reports to Generate for the End of the School Year

  • Teacher Reports: Math or ELA Report Cards are printer-friendly overviews of what your students accomplished in Math or ELA this year.
  • Math or ELA Assessment Reports are helpful if you have given either assessment during the school year.
  • Administrator Reports: Overview and Growth dashboard – (data on students’ Adaptive Math and ELA Skills Practice).
  • Usage Overview dashboard – (Usage data for all practice types).

Summer Access

  • Students will be able to access Freckle over the summer! If your school rosters through your Renaissance site, Clever, or Classlink students can continue logging in using their SSO or you can provide the student their Class Code.
  • How to find my class code: the class code is located in the upper right corner of each roster on the Roster page on your Freckle teacher dashboard.
  • If your school rosters manually through Freckle students will still have access to their Class Code until the rosters are updated and the old class is deleted from the Roster page.

How do I end my school year with Lalilo?

Depending on your rostering method, Lalilo classes will remain active unless you archive or delete them. This means students stay enrolled in the same class until you transfer them to their new class.

What reports/data views should I save? How will these reports/views help the teachers next school year?

Data will continually accumulate since there are no designated school years in Lalilo. You can download and print Students Standards Reports, and Admin Reports. For the other reports, we suggest taking screenshots or using a browser’s printing options to print the desired data.

What should I do so my students can continue using this product in the summer?

Depending on your rostering method, your class might not be available during the summer. For example, if you rostered through RGP, your classes and students are added and edited automatically, so please contact your administrator if you need them to be updated or wish to keep them during the summer. Otherwise, your class will remain active until you delete it. This means your students can access Lalilo throughout the summer.

If you want your students to use Lalilo for the summer, make sure you provide them with Home Code. Students can then go to from their home computers, click on “Log In” and “Student at Home,” then enter their code and continue practicing where they left off.
