About Hero

Hero is a student behavior management software designed to help K-12 schools track and manage both positive and negative student behavior. With reinforcement, redirection and communication tools, Hero enables users to manage classroom activity, referrals and tardiness as well as track incidents and student behavior. Native mobile apps for iOS and Android aim to keep parents, teachers and students on the same page.

Users can collect, record and analyze essential student data with points tracking technology and custom reports. Hero’s data reporting allows users to notice positive behavior trends and reward students for their behavior. With classroom management capabilities, users can track classroom activity and participation, receive at-a-glance behavior overviews and implement and edit school-wide policies.

Hero provides a simple referral workflow, enabling users to approve, reject or request more information for teacher-submitted referrals. Student Information System (SIS) integration with applications such as PowerSchool allows users to share and analyze referral data. Users can track any major incidents at school such as disruptive behavior, bullying or vandalism. Hero also automates minor discipline and tardiness management as users can scan and print passes for tardy students.

Hero’s attendance tracking technology enables users to maintain a complete digital record of student attendance at any event, from school dances to field trips and sporting events. Users can manage events easily with a one step student check-in process and pop-up alerts. Alerts notify users when a student has unserved detentions and allows users to control who has access to events.

Positive school behavior is catching on and students are doing better.

Positive school behavior is catching on and students are doing better.

Pros

I enjoy the positive behavior reporting. Students are now able to find rewards for their hardwork. Additionally, staff can use the software to review their students behavior.

Cons

I wish we were about to track incidents more efficiently. I also do not like what the handheld offer.... the use of your smartphone is more practical.

We have increased the engagment in the classroom and are reducing the negative actions. Students are getting used to the positive expectations. We are facilitating more rather than responsing to negative behavior.

Pros

We like the fact that it is web based and we can access it from anywhere. As as administrator, it is a great way to interact with students and give them points at the same time. At lunch, they see us taking our phones out and they know we are issuing points! They sure have their ID ready to scan! Teachers love it because they can now recognize students for displaying positive behavior in the classroom. It is starting to encourage students that would not likely participate be an active member of the classroom. It is easy enough to use that, teachers that are hesitant to use this new technology, are adapting positively. The equipment is simple to use also. Students love the incentives, teachers like being recognized for using it (ie. lunch on the principal), and parents are stating that their child talk about HERO K-12 at home. This year we are opening our VIP Lounge. Our campus is only going to get better. Overall it is fantastic!!! You can follow us on Twitter to see what is trending at our campus at #ccmsthisishowwedoit or #ccmsbethat1person.

Reviewed on 2019/03/15

Pros

HERO is allows our school to track tardies and positive behaviors. The students are parents are able to create a log in to track the students' behaviors.

Cons

HERO does not allow teachers to take attendance or track grades. This is another system for teachers to use to keep track of information. It is an overpriced system that could be reduced to handing out cheap tickets in the hallways.

An unbelievable change in tardies and school atmosphere in the minutes after the tardy bell.

Reviewed on 2017/12/14

Pros

global tracking of positive and negative behaviors. being able to have students "spend" their points for rewards at the hero store. being able to use an app to scan student ID's (apple and android).

Cons

I guess the biggest downfall really is the lag time I sometimes get when trying to record points for my students. Also, it seems like it takes just one click too many to record the points.

Reviewed on 2019/03/20

Pros

I like that I can track so many behaviors (both positive and negative-tardy). I also like that when I track the behavior of a student, I can see what behavioral step they are on. The student search function is also handy. It's nice to be able to find students throughout the entire school.

Cons

It takes you through a lot of steps to mark a behavior.
