Your school determines the categories and specific behaviors it will track. You can customize the point values of each behavior, and there are no limits on how big your rubric can be. Here is a sample behavior rubric.
Frequently Asked Questions
My school is interested but we need more information
LiveSchool offers two ways to keep your students informed and engaged:
1) Students receive a printed earnings report each week that helps them track their hard work
2) Teachers have real-time access to student weekly earnings, behavior history, and specific comments. Use this information to encourage your students throughout the day!
Here is a Sample LiveSchool Weekly Report. Your school will get to decide which widgets you want to include on your reports!
LiveSchool offers a 45-day pilot program to all schools! You can get started today by emailing email@example.com with your school name and the number of users who will be piloting LiveSchool.
Absolutely, and we never charge for it! We provide video resources embedded throughout the platform and also have highly responsive experts available by phone and email!
What technology does LiveSchool work with?
LiveSchool isn't actually an app you download! It is secure web-based platform that looks and feels like an app.
LiveSchool automatically syncs with your Student Information System to ensure your teachers always have up-to-date class rosters. This sync feature is totally free and supports virtually any SIS.
LiveSchool is a web-based platform that works on all versions of iPad, the Microsoft Surface, and any Android tablet running version 4.0+. You don't need a tablet to use LiveSchool, either. The platform works on any laptop or desktop computer running the latest version of Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Safari.
There are many more affordable tablets on the market that LiveSchool supports! See them here.
Our school implements PBIS. Is this for us?
Yes! LiveSchool can help eliminate a number of challenges with paper bucks and tickets systems, including:
- Lack of data on who is giving paper reinforcers, when, and for what
- Hours of time spent by teachers to create and track paper reinforcers
- Students losing their paper reinforcers, or even forging them!
Yes, you can. In addition to robust in-classroom behavior tracking tools, LiveSchool makes it easy to track the time, location, and reason for office referrals. You can export this data to drive continuous improvement plans at your school.
Absolutely! With a single click, your school can configure your LiveSchool site to support the "earning is final" rule. You can still track negative behavior for data collection purposes, but your reinforcement system will be positive-only.

How can our school roll out LiveSchool?
There are three simple steps to getting started with LiveSchool:
- Sign our Pilot Agreement. This is not a commitment to purchase. Get started by emailing your school name and number of users to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Sync your SIS. Use either Automatic or SFTP methods to sync your class roster data to LiveSchool. We'll quickly build your LiveSchool site so that you can get started.
- Pilot for 45 days. Start using LiveSchool to track and improve school behavior, then decide if the platform is for you.
We can create your LiveSchool site within 24 hours of a successful SIS sync!
I need help syncing my school’s SIS
To get your SIS sync started, fill out our setup form. We will contact you within 48 hours with a next step.
Automatic Sync means that LiveSchool's sync partner, Clever, will automatically download changes to class rosters from your SIS every night and sync them to LiveSchool. Automatic is the preferred way to sync your SIS because it takes seconds and there is nothing to maintain. Only these SIS systems are currently supported for Automatic Sync:
PowerSchool, Aspen (X2), Illuminate, IMG iPass, Infinite Campus, JMC, NYC ARIS, SchoolInsight, Skward, STI Information NOW (iNOW), Tyler SIS
SFTP Sync means that your school or a supporting IT department prepares .CSV files and securely uploads them to our sync partner, Clever. We highly recommend setting this upload to happen on a nightly or weekly basis to ensure that your teachers have up-to-date class rosters.
With Automatic Sync, we will validate your data and create your LiveSchool site with 24 hours!
With SFTP Sync, the next step after completing the Clever form is to upload your first files! Read more about the format for SFTP files.
