Waterford released an automatic software update on August 2, 2017. See what’s in this release in the list below. If you have any questions, our Support Team is always happy to help!
Native Language Support: This new feature adds native language support for Spanish-speaking students in SmartStart and Level 1 of Waterford Early Learning’s reading program. Students for whom native language support is enabled hear Waterford activities in English first, and then get repeat instruction in Spanish and English. Administrators can enable native language support in the Waterford Manager.
This enables native language support for any student whose primary language is set to Spanish in their student profile. To change a student’s primary language:
New Import Template: There is a new student import template in the Waterford Manager. Be sure to use this most recent version when you add students for the new school year.
New Student Profile Indicator: You can now add a student’s “Household Status” under their student profile. Options include foster, military, homeless and other designations.
As always, please contact support if you have questions or need assistance!
