Here are Toni's recommendations for School Manager system checks to ensure a successful start to the new school year.
1) Are you experiencing a change of staff in the new year?
A new school year always means staff changes, which can lead to School Manager reports not being delivered to the relevant staff members. Therefore, the start of the year is a good time to check which staff are receiving reports in School Manager and reviewing these settings regularly throughout the year.
To help deal with staff changes, Toni recommends using generic school email accounts, where possible, to help reduce administration when there is a change in staff, i.e. email@example.com.

2) Is it time to update your School Manager filtering policies?
It is always a good idea at the start of the school year to check that your filtering policies are still meeting your school’s needs. Your filtering policies will need to be reviewed and evolve in response to your school's pedagogies and the dynamic nature of the Internet, including new online games, apps, and trends.
