Assigning students to rooms allows you to better track track your student's activities across several brightwheel features such as reporting, logging activities, and tracking attendance and room changes throughout the day.
Brightwheel allows you to assign as many rooms to any student as needed, to make the check-in process easier for teachers and parents we have also added a Homeroom feature.
Homeroom - This will be the default room shown at check-in for the student.
Additional Rooms - All other rooms a student is assigned to, this allows them to be moved, checked in and out of, and parents can receive messages from.
