A new student reward system uses motivational methods to connect positive, real-life behaviors with rewards provided through online software.

The Skyward Student Reward System will be available to customers at the beginning of the 2013-2014 school year, and is a free integrated feature of the Skyward Student Management Suite. Within the system, students can assume a virtual identity, or avatar, and earn points for academic-related activities and game play. When students accumulate points, they are able to customize their avatar, advance to new levels within the system, and gain the ability to redeem “virtual” points to purchase items from their school store. Students are able to safely share their avatars and point totals with family members and peers.
