Using District Leader Tools in myCore

The District Leader Manual describes the district leader dashboard, examples of resources offered by the district, and sharing and reporting tools.

 

District Leader Tools

 

 

Main School Leader Features

1. Dashboard

2. District Resources

3. Sharing Units

4. Reporting Tools

 

 

1. Dashboard

The district leader dashboard allows administrators to create units to share with teachers in the district and view important information about district schools. District leaders can use the reporting features on the right to see which schools are using myCore to plan effective lessons. The district leader also adds dates to the calendar that will be available to help teachers pace their teaching.

 

Schools can be added to the district in two easy ways: click on the green box to add a single school or there is a link just below it to upload multiple schools at once from a CSV file. At a minimum, myCore requires a new school to have a name and a number assigned to it.

 

 

2. District Resources

The district resources page is divided into several sections where important district links and information can be housed. A representative from the district should be designated to provide hyperlinks for the link bank, key documents specific to planning instruction and videos to include as resources for effective planning and teaching strategies.

 

 

3. Sharing Units

The sharing feature in myCore currently allows units to be shared only by district leaders. Once a unit has been finalized, there is a blue hyperlink that shows whether a unit has been shared with teachers or not. If you are ready to share the unit, click on the “not shared” link and mark the share box to share the unit with all teachers in the district. Any teacher in the district who finds the unit relevant can then copy it to their unit library and begin to personalize it to fit the needs of his or her students.

 

 

4. Reporting Tools

There are reports down the right-hand side of the district leader’s dashboard page that help you see which schools are using myCore to plan effective, standards-based units and lessons. District leaders can add dates to the school calendar that will be available to help teachers pace their lesson plans. You will see links to view or download the reports so you can compare the success of schools and proactively plan your professional development to address actual areas of weakness.
