Who is this PR for?

educators, particularly folks facilitating MTSS or longer discussions

What problem does this PR fix?

SessionRenewal uses a rough heuristic to warn users if their session is about to expire. But there's a bug at the call site that means it only shows the warning for one second before forcing a reload. This can lead to folks actively working with a page open for a long time to lose their work (eg, taking notes on the profile page during a long MTSS meeting, and the page just reloads without saving or warning).

What does this PR do?

Sets the warning to show for 60 seconds. Longer term we should revisit this altogether, but this improves things immediately today.


Which features or pages does this PR touch?

  • Core UI
