Student Lists Now Sorted by Last Names

Affects: Waterford Early Learning, Waterford Reading Academy, Waterford SmartStart

We adjusted the student list organization in Waterford Manager, Reports, and Dashboards. Rather than sorting students alphabetically by first name, all lists will be sorted by last name. This will help save educators time, as most student rosters are organized alphabetically by last name.

We added new social-emotional learning resources for educators and parents to Waterford Reading Academy, including:

  • 150 Pre-Reading books
