myFolio 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?
You can make someone’s day by shining the spotlight on their praiseworthy efforts, work, and contributions to the school.
Sending a Spotlight: myFolio has two ways to send a Spotlight comment, from the Homepage, or from the School Directory.
From the Homepage:
On the right-hand side of the Homepage (click your School's logo to reach the Homepage), find the “Shine the Spotlight” widget. Click the "Select a recipient" drop-down and start typing the person's name. Click their name to select them, enter your Spotlight and click "Send" to Shine the Spotlight.
From the School Directory Page
In the 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." Then enter the Spotlight and click "Send."
