Easily track and share students' statuses with all your teachers


Introducing Flags, where you can label, identify, and take specific actions to ensure student success in your CritterCoin PBIS system!

Flags Overview

Flags are a quick way to label students visually that is super easy to use. Your school's CritterCoin admin can easily customize the label's name, color, and description of what the flag is used for. Students can have flags based on… just about anything, but here are a couple of examples to view!

All teachers can see flags, but they are never visible to other students or parents. This becomes useful when your PBIS team needs to easily support students at any time.

This comes in handy when it comes time to give intervention to a specific group of students that range from tier 3 students receiving group counseling to viewing who turned in their permission slips. Teachers need the flexibility of use, and we are here to support you!

Suppose you give a Journal Entry during a Quest,and a student answers with signs of depression. In that case, the AI and the flag node work together to flag a student based on their responses.

One of the great things about flags is that they are flexible to handle many teacher and student needs. You can use flags as a way to identify students who have:
