When you first create your account, part of the setup process is to select your school. We ask for this information for a few reasons:
Tying together teachers from a single school
We need to know your school information in order to link your account with other teachers using Whooo's Reading at your school. Once linked, you can see other classes on the School page and view progress toward common reading and writing goals for the whole school. This page also allows you to invite other teachers at your school to Whooo's Reading.
Types of schools using WR
Knowing what school our Whooo's Reading teachers teach at helps us understand the distribution of Whooo's Reading teachers across private, public, alternative, and charter schools. Since these different schools often have different needs, it is important that we know this information to make informed decisions on ways to continuously improve Whooo's Reading for our teachers and students.
Customizations to your account
Knowing your school and zip code helps us customize your account. From your timezone, to your standards, to data about your students' success, small pieces of your account can change based on where you teach. This helps us setup your account to fit your classroom's unique situation.
Don't worry, your information is safe!
We do not share any information about you, your school, or your students outside of the company. Privacy is very important to us. We are COPPA compliant and respect the privacy of all of our users. Any information we request on Whooo's Reading is strictly to help us to make the program the best it can be.
How to add your school information:
In order to add your students for the first time, the program will ask you to add your school information. You can either select a school from the search results, or manually type in a school name and zip code if your school is not listed.
To search for a school, type in your school's name or zip code:
If your school is listed, select it from the list, click Save, and you're done!
If your school is not listed, click the "Your school not here?" link.
Type in the name of your school or program (or even "Homeschool" or something similar, depending on your reason for using Whooo's Reading) and your zip code:
Click Save, and you're done!
You can edit your school at any time on the School page. Click School in the upper right, then click the Change School link next to your school name.
Note: If you are a homeschool teacher, you can click the "Your school not here?" link and type in "Homeschool" and your zip code.
