Student Locator 

The Student Locator provides a detailed dashboard view of your student population and their location. This Locator screen by default shows all current on/off campus locations of all students, you can then refine the view using the filters provided, or search for an individual student.
Locations and their corresponding colours presented here and throughout the Reach Portal are created and managed by your school. 

Go To: Dashboards >> Student Locator




How to Navigate

Top Row Selector Fields

The top of the Student Locator screen provides the standard Reach drop-down selectors to refine your search of the student population as required, all items in each list are created/managed by your school. All viewable data will auto-update as you select/deselect any item.
  1. House/Dorm
  2. Year/Grade
  3. Locations
