A Community is a group of Classes that can be managed together and reported on together. Every Class and its corresponding Class Leads must belong to a Community and can belong to several. For example, the Class “Ms. Gonzales – Calculus 1” (and Ms. Gonzales herself) might belong to the Communities “Tubman High School” and “Tubman Social Studies Classes.” PERTS recommends creating a primary Community that holds all Classes for a school to facilitate managing those Classes. Then, creating additional sub-Communities, as needed.
There are 3 roles in a Community, each with unique levels of permissions and report access. You can read about each in the roles and permissions article. To set up a Community, the Community Lead must invite Members, add Classes, and set a survey schedule. The program provides prompts and guidance along the way.
