What is a reset?

A reset is the process of preparing returning customers for a new school year. It allows for new assessment windows to be set and for growth and usage reports to display correctly. Students are  advanced to their new grade level* before rostering occurs in the new school year.

Resets must occur at the district/site code level, which triggers a concurrent data reset for all schools within the organization/site code. 

All automated nightly import syncs will be automatically paused on the reset date and Imagine Learning will turn the syncs back on when your reset is complete. Ensure your Student Information System (SIS) is updated for the upcoming school year before the reset occurs. 

When a reset occurs:

  • Student accounts are retained
  • Each student's rostered grade level is advanced by 1 grade (*except for students in Grade PreK)
  • Classes/groups are deleted
  • Educator accounts are retained

Deleted for the 2024-25 school year, but remain available in the 2023-2024 school year. This is why you need to re-roster after reset; educators without at least 1 assigned class will not be able to access Imagine Galileo.

 Caution

Do not change your roster until after your reset is complete.

Learning paths from the previous school year are archived; the data from the previous year's paths can be found in the Cumulative Performance Report

Assignment Builder

Reset so that windows can be established for the new academic year.

Classes

Academic Session

The academic session is the dates for the school year. The previous academic session ends and a new one begins.

 Recommendation

Imagine MyPath, Imagine Science Corner, and Imagine Purpose customers: As a best practice, we recommend downloading an official copy of the 2023-24 school year data prior to your reset. Even though student data is retained, since classes are not, student data will no longer be organized by prior school year classes if you pull previous school year data from the Cumulative Performance report during the 2024-25 school year. 

Reset Window

For the 2024 reset, customers have been automatically assigned one of 3 default dates:

  • Friday, July 19
  • Friday, August 2
  • Friday, August 16

The yellow banner at the top of the Product Portal lets you know which date your organization has been assigned.


If the 2024 date doesn't suit this year's needs, District Administrators* have the option to change their assigned date to any non-holiday weekday between June 1 and October 1. The date selected must be at least one day in the future.

The reset date applies to all products listed at the top of this page. Different reset dates for different products in the Literacy/MyPath suites are not allowed.

*Schools that do not have a corresponding District Administrator account should reach out to their CSM or Imagine Learning Product Support for assistance.

Changing your reset date

 Recommendations

  • Leave the reset date as assigned if your school year and summer school session both end before this dateIf your school year and/or summer school session end after your assigned date, select a date soon after they both conclude (but before your new school year begins).
  • Allow at least 2 weeks between your reset date and when you want to start using the products. This will give you sufficient time to roster your students.
  • Districts that want a reset date before 6/1 or after 10/1 should contact their Customer Success Manager (CSM). 
  • If your organization also uses Imagine Math and/or Imagine Math Facts, set the same reset date across both the Literacy/MyPath suite and the Imagine Math suite. This facilitates a uniform experience for both teachers and students.
