 Is Schoology a good way to send detention slips?

Many students have been having problems with Schoology and getting detention reminders through their notifications. It does, however, take less work and less time to make all the notes and have people send them out as well. So the question is: does getting notes through Schoology make things more efficient and easier to use for the students or is it just a faster way to  get notes out?

Sometimes students don’t know when the notification comes and sometimes they don’t even see the note until a much later time, and by then it is already too late and they are stuck with an added detention. So how do students feel about getting detentions through their iPad instead of a hard copy note that 100% makes you aware that you have detention on a certain day?

 The Talon caught up with a few students and staff to see how they have reacted to the new policy and how effective it has been to them.

“It’s awful,” says Blake Edwards (’15). “I never know when I have detention or lunch detention because sometimes I don’t even get the notes, so I never even know about it. I would much rather have the old slips back.”

Margret Tabunda (’14) says, “ I like the old slips because  I actually know when I’m going to have it. It just makes things easier for us.”

Co-Dean of Students Ms. Cecilia Powers has a different perspective on the notes running through Schoology.

“The notes are currently not being as effective as they should be because students are not checking their Schoology accounts,” she says.

She also says that “we’re sticking with [Schoology] though” because having students running around campus and interrupting classes causes problems.

It seems like students are not the biggest fans of having this new method of notes, but it seems like it may continue for a while and we will have to adapt for now.
