When leaving a sticky note in the SIS it is necessary to be aware of the message inserted. Appropriate times to insert a sticky note are when you learn something about the student that is timely and important for all stakeholders including other teachers to know about. Examples include:

  • Student availability or unavailability (going on vacation, competition session, training schedule, etc.
  • Academic integrity concerns - if a student plagiarizes in one course, the teacher should place a sticky note for other teachers to be aware of concern. See example below:

Offense, Course Name, Lesson Name, Activity Plagiarized, Action Taken, Notifications, Teacher First Initial Last Name, Date Reported: 
Example: 1st Offense, US History I A-IC, Civil War Reconstruction, Essay, Reset and notified student, mentor and guardian, A.Knudsen, 11/9/2020

  • Student preferences - if a student shares that they go by a different name, prefers one time of communication over another, etc.
