On June 24, 2022, all class data for Second Step® Elementary and Second Step® Middle School digital programs will be cleared. Training progress for the Second Step® Bullying Prevention Unit, Second Step® Child Protection Unit, and Second Step® Elementary classroom kits will also be cleared and reset to start tracking progress for the new school year.
Why are you making this update?
We reset all class and training data at the end of each school year so teachers and license administrators will have a refreshed dashboard and program reporting for the new academic year.
How will this affect me?
Teachers of Second Step® Elementary and Second Step® Middle School digital programs: Your classes will be cleared. After June 24, you will need to create new classes before you teach.
Users of lesson progress reports in the Second Step® Elementary and Second Step® Middle School digital programs: The Lesson Progress Report page and downloadable detailed lesson report CSV document show class activity for current classes, so when classes are reset on June 24, teachers will need to create new classes in order to see any progress on the Lesson Progress Report page or in the CSV report.
If you are looking for a report from last year or the prior year, you will still have access to it and will be able to download it from the Lesson Progress Report page.
Users of training resources in the Bullying Prevention Unit and Child Protection Unit: On June 24, training progress and certificates for the Bullying Prevention and Child Protection Units from the 2021–2022 school year will no longer be available.
- Before June 24, 2022, finish trainings and print completion certificates. If you use the training completion report, be sure to download a copy in User Management before June 24—training progress will reset for all the members of your license on that date.
- Wait until June 25 to start training, when progress tracking and completion will begin again.
What about users of training resources in Second Step® Elementary classroom kits?
On June 24, training progress and certificates for Second Step Elementary classroom kits from the 2021–2022 school year will no longer be available.
- Before June 24, finish trainings and print completion certificates.
- Wait until June 25 to start training.
We are using the Second Step Elementary or Second Step® Middle School digital program in summer school. What should we do?
If you create a class for summer school before June 24, it will be cleared on June 24, and you will need to create new classes starting June 25. We recommend that you wait until after the June 24 class reset to begin teaching lessons if you can, filling in with Second Step Middle School advisory activities or activities from our Community Rebuilding Units if you need content before the reset. You can find our Community Rebuilding Units at the links below:
- Second Step Elementary Kindergarten–Grade 1 Community Rebuilding Unit
- Second Step Elementary Grades 2–3 Community Rebuilding Unit
- Second Step Elementary Grades 4–5 Community Rebuilding Unit
- Second Step Middle School Community Rebuilding Unit
If you are unable to delay your summer school lessons, we recommend that you complete a full unit prior to the class reset. Please note: If you are in the middle of teaching a unit at the time of the reset, the new lesson material may not go along with the previous lessons. Content across all grades and units in both Second Step Elementary and Second Step Middle School digital programs will be updated in the reset. More about the Second Step Middle School content update can be found here: Second Step Middle School Updates for the 2022–2023 School Year. More about the Second Step Elementary digital program content update can be found here: Second Step Elementary Digital Program Updates for the 2022–2023 School Year.
I want my staff to complete part of their training this summer. Do you have any advice?
All training progress will be reset June 24. We recommend that you schedule training to be completed by June 24 or to begin after the update so that your staff will not have to repeat training modules to complete their progress.
I completed my training before the update. Will my certificate be available after the update?
No, last year’s certificate will not be available so please download a copy before June 24.
As a license administrator, will I have to invite all the teachers and administrators again after the reset?
No. All your current users will continue to have access to their program or training. Remember to add all incoming staff as users and to remove access to staff who have left your school.
I am a Bullying Prevention Unit and/or Child Protection Unit training license administrator. Will my training data from before the update remain available in the training dashboard?
No, training completion data for progress prior to the update will be reset. Please download your training completion reports in User Management before the update.
What impact will this have on lesson progress reporting for Second Step® Elementary and Second Step® Middle School digital programs?
The Lesson Progress Report page has a summary of lesson progress for this academic year. Separate downloadable detailed reports are available for each academic year you’ve used the program since the 2020–2021 school year. So, when classes are reset on June 24, teachers will need to create new classes for the new academic year.
Can you provide me with messaging about the reset for my staff and teachers?

Can I opt out of the reset?
No, we do not have a method for opting out of the annual reset.
Can I change the reset date?
No, we do not have any way to set custom reset dates for clients.
Are there other updates I should know about?
