The SNO Report: Tasks to end the school year

We know the clock is winding down to summer break. Before you and your staff call it a wrap on the 2023-2024 school year, please make sure to review our end-of-the-year checklist to set yourself up for success in the fall.

  • Remove site access for your departing staff members.聽Once the last day of school concludes, make sure to聽聽of your former staff members to 鈥渟ubscribers.鈥 This retains their work while restricting their access to the backend of the site, ensuring your site remains safe and secure.

  • Give us a heads up about adviser changes.聽If you know that a new adviser will be taking over the program next year,聽send us a聽support ticket聽so we can聽update our records and send them a warm welcome. If you’re ready聽to make the switch immediately, visit the Contact Info section in your site’s dashboard and change the adviser there聽鈥 no support ticket required.

  • Take a backup of your site.聽Whether you plan on redesigning your site over the summer or leaving it untouched, taking a聽聽captures a copy of the current version of your site in case it becomes necessary to restore it down the line.

  • Put us to work.聽If your staff has been eyeing a聽听辞谤听聽for a while, summertime is the best time to pull the trigger. We鈥檒l add it to our docket, and you鈥檒l have a fancy new site or detailed video analysis waiting for you when you get back to school.

  • Consider scheduling a training session.聽Will your incoming staff consist of newbies who have never touched your site before? It may be wise to聽聽with one of our SNO experts. You can schedule it whenever it makes sense to you and have as many students in attendance as you would like.

  • Reset SNO Donate.聽Did you know that SNO clients have made over $100,000 in donations this year? If you already聽have聽聽activated on your site, consider editing your Donation Settings and resetting your goal date to聽start fresh next fall.聽If you don’t have SNO Donate activated yet, consider activating it聽for the fall to get in on the action.

  • Reset FLOW.聽If you’re a FLOW user, after the last day of school create a 2024-2025 instance under “” on the settings tab. From there, you will be able to select returning staff members, workflows, checklists, groups, discussion channels, and rubrics you want to carry over from the previous school year.

  • Don鈥檛 stress about badges.聽We鈥檒l be revising the badge guidelines over the summer, so don鈥檛 worry about planning for how to earn those badges until we release the new guidelines in August.

As always, we want to express our appreciation for letting us build and support your websites this year. We hope you have a safe and relaxing summer.
