I have a small school, with about 100 kids, and I am considering using Trello to track students throughout their time at our school.
I would love some feedback on the best way to do this. Thoughts:
Idea 2 seems simpler but my concern is that over time the feed is going to get so long that finding things would become a challenge. Ideally, I'd like to track and search for items a teacher has posted so meeting with parents is easy.
Would love feedback and ideas!
@Bill McInerney I think you're better off creating your assets by cohort rather than grade, because students change grade every year but, for example, the class of 2024 is always the class of 2024.
I think I'd approach this with a single board, one list per cohort, one card per student, and then use linked checklist items to one card for each student for each grade as they go through (and any other required "deeper" information levels):
When you're using linked checklist items, you can archive the linked cards so they don't take up space on the main board and everything still looks neat n tidy. You can also link cards as attachments:
