Forefront users can create a new group for intervention purposes, to track the progress of a small group, or to flexibly group students in a grade level. The article linked here details how those with the Teacher role in Forefront may create those groups. For special education teachers or interventionists working with a group of students, they may wish to communicate those groups to teachers and have teachers create and share those groups.
Alternatively, special education teachers or interventionists may have a Building Leader role so that they may access student information across a building and create their own groups without requiring teachers to do so for them. If this is the case, they can flexibly create groups by navigating to the "Classes" page.
1) To create a new class or a group of students, navigate to the "Classes" page in the left-hand navigation pane.
2) Select the button "Create New Class" next to the academic term drop-down menu to open the class creation window.
3) Select the primary teacher, course, and modify the name, adding a tag if needed. Note the following regarding each item:
Primary Teacher: Each class needs to have a primary teacher. Put your own name here. If you wish to share the class in the future, you may do so by following the steps outlined here.
Course: The courses for your district were set at the time of your district's annual set up. You may align a group of students with a grade level or below grade level (or above grade level) course. If you do so, the assessments included in those courses will correspond to district assessment assignments for those courses. You may always assign an assessment to your group of students regardless of grade level alignment, but if you need to have a new course created for your district that spans multiple grade levels or wish to exclude district assessment assignments that are included in the district-created courses, please reach out to email@example.com first with your request.
Name: This is the name that will display on building leaders' pacing pages and when the group is opened. Use a naming system that distinguishes this group for you and does not create confusion for the building and district leadership that will also see the class.
