Without standardized policies across the district, it was difficult for administrators to measure data from different schools. By standardizing tardy improvement with Hero, the Waukegan School District was able to establish consistency, reduce tardies, and create a supportive environment by rewarding all students.
With a paper-based system of tardy slips, it was difficult for the school to keep track of consecutive tardy infractions, let alone enforce the consequences. And so students thought there was a 30-minute grace period to get to class. With accurate, accessible data, administrators could hold students accountable – and teach them responsibility for their actions.
