We’re excited to be kicking off the second semester of the 2023/24 school year! We had several exciting updates and new features that were released during the first half of the school year. In case you missed anything, here’s a summary of recent announcements and changes.
Refresher Training - As users are coming back after winter break, it might be helpful to brush up on some of SameGoal’s functionality. We are holding several refresher training sessions from January 17th to January 26th. Learn more.
Product Updates Webinar - We will be holding Product Update Webinars for Texas and Ohio where we will walk through new and updated forms and demonstrate new features. Learn more.
Buildings - Buildings now act as their own record item in SameGoal. With an active demographics integration with your SIS, buildings will be created and updated automatically, but administrative users may also create and manage buildings automatically. Additionally, there is a new Building filter on the Students / create new tab. Learn more.
