Ideas for when to re-name or update metric definitions:

  • Align your Schoolzilla dashboards with your strategic plan by including the goal number in the name of the metric (e.g. "Goal 1: Chronic Absence").
  • Include notes in the metric definition of how this number may differ from how this metric has been calculated previously or appears in other systems.

Note: Changes will take 24 hours to appear on your Schoolzilla dashboards. Changes to the metric name will not change the student metric name (which appears on Our Students and the Student Profile). Contact support or your Implementation Specialist to update the student metric name.
