n2y Staff

It’s that time of year—Back to School! To ensure you have everything you need to kick‑start your school year successfully, we’ve been working hard all summer on updating your favorite learning solutions’ tools with the goal of improving both you and your students’ experience inside and outside the classroom. Read on to get the details about these exciting new tools!

My Students

Save valuable time with My Students! From one central location, you can see completion and submission status of student assignments, preview Student View, look at performance data, and adjust student and solution settings, giving you time back for instruction. Additionally, you can assign lessons and activities from Unique Learning System, News2you, L3 Skills, and SymbolStix PRIME.

Monthly Lessons

Quickly preview and assign Unique Learning System activities and design an overarching instructional pathway in just one place. Find the exact lessons and activities you’re looking for as you search by state standard, category, subject, or skill. The new Quick Assign button lets you assign an activity to individual students, groups of students, or your entire class, for either class work or homework. In addition, deliver lessons and activities to students with ease through direct links to each assignment, regardless of where they are learning. This way, data is collected with fidelity, allowing for learning management system (LMS) usage and improved pacing with general education.

Student View

A simplified, more intuitive Student View design drives student engagement and provides clear, consistent navigation for students across their n2y solutions. New prompts make it easy to see which assignments have been completed and those still needing work, promoting greater independence and task completion. Additionally, when students have finished an activity, they now have a Turn In button for submitting work—ensuring teachers see related data in Daily Scores and Observations or Lesson Status. Lastly, multiple login options and assignable CheckPoint assessments improve flexibility in collecting data with fidelity regardless of learning environment.

Professional Learning

As you return to school, brushing up on training can support you in setting the tone for a positive school year. Now administrators can provide teachers with many different learning options for professional development that meet their busy schedules, including training, implementation, and support for n2y solutions.


Last but not least, additional reports have been added to empower administrators and district leadership to quickly understand the usage and impact of our solutions in classrooms across the entire district. With insights from these reports, administrators can assist teachers and service providers in making better data‑informed decisions.

We think you’ll enjoy using these new tools to improve instruction, save valuable time, and better engage your students. Here’s to a positive and productive school year!
