Folio allows you to send positive notes or commendations to colleagues through the use of Spotlight. Spotlight comments are visible to your supervisors, making them aware of the exemplary efforts, projects, and contributions you and your colleagues have made to the school.
If you can answer “yes” to any of the following, shine a spotlight on someone:
- Have you witnessed someone going above and beyond the call of duty?
- Did you observe an exceptional lesson, student collaboration, or project?
- Did someone show courage or leadership during challenging times to benefit the school and its students?
- Have you worked with someone who exemplifies your school’s mission?
Sending a Spotlight: Folio has two ways to Send a Spotlight comment, from your Dashboard, or from the School Tab.
From the Dashboard:
Clicking the “Shine the Spotlight” on your Dashboard page, and start typing the person's name. Click their name, enter your Spotlight and click Save Comment to Shine the Spotlight.
From the School Page
In top menu, click the word "School" and you will be taken to the School page. Here, find the person you would like to Shine a Spotlight on by entering the first letters of their name in the Search box and clicking on them in the search results.
In their entry in the School Directory, click on the Shine a Spotlight link. Then enter the Spotlight and click "Shine the Spotlight."
