Activities Director Jessica Lee spearheaded the launch of Minga’s Digital Student IDs at Bear River High School. With full adoption of all modules, the Minga ID unlocked student engagement reports that helped her reach her participation goals.
Bear River High like most schools has been struggling to re-engage their student body since Covid-19.
Jessica grappled to determine which events were more popular than others, making it challenging to plan successful school activities. Despite a dedicated team of leadership students, promoting and managing spirit initiatives was becoming increasingly difficult. Social media engagement was low and many students were uninformed. Jessica knew something needed to be done to improve the situation.
KEY PROBLEM AREAS
- Lack of student engagement data
- Little awareness around events and spirit days
- Ineffective communication between leadership and student body
- No record of event attendance
- No data on which students need more attention
- Hassle of reprinting IDs and managing validations
By adopting all of Minga’s modules and placing the Digital Student IDs at the center, Bear River High was able to unlock their student engagement potential. The school made use of various tools and functions offered by the IDs, such as:
Online Digital Reports
Because of the quick and easy ability to scan students into events, Jessica is able to access information on which students attended events, as well as their arrival and departure times.
The ability to scan students into events, and everyday activities using the barcode on their Digital ID has been revolutionary. Using a regular scanner or just through the Minga app on any device.
Connect Student IDs with Hall Passes
Minga’s Digital Hall Pass is connected and accessed directly through a student’s Digital ID. Managing and keeping kids out of the hallway means they spend more time engaged in class.
Assign Specific Privileges
Being able to assign privileges to students through their Digital ID is really convenient. All updates are active in real time and can be customized to things like lunch passes, honor roll, ASB all access, and more.
HERE ARE THE DIGITAL ID RESULTS
The adoption of Minga’s Digital Student IDs at Bear River High has opened so many doors and created a sense of synergy that was before unheard of. Because of their new ability to easily access and analyze student engagement data, they’ve been able to increase their levels of participation exponentially. Students are driven to the app because their Digital Student ID lives there, then once activated they see messaging around events and activities and are urged to complete polls with important spirit and scheduling questions. This has increased awareness and has greatly facilitated communication and community.
Gaining reports on student attendance, participation, behavior, hallway time, and more, has completely changed the game for Activities Director, Jessica. She is now able to see what’s working and captivating the student body as a collective, and what engagement measures and incentives need a revamp. Identifying students who are not participating allows Jessica to intervene and provide support to those who may be feeling discouraged and disconnected from the school community. Lastly, they’ve been able to avoid the printing and reprinting of physical IDs this year, which has saved time and funding for Bear River High School.
