Welcome back teachers!

The beginning of the school year can be filled with lots of excitement and preparation! We've created a useful checklist to help you start the new school year off right!

Update your class pages

  • Let your students know how excited you are to have them in your class by updating your Teacher Profile.
    Check out how to sign into Web Community Manager and how to navigate your section workspace.
  • Add content to your class page using drag-and-drop apps!
    Check out page types and adding apps.
  • Here are some ideas of useful content you can add:
    • Add a syllabus, list of rules, or any other documents you want to share with your students and their parents.
      Check out the Content app and the latest editing features.
    • Create helpful lists for students so they come to class prepared. For example, you can provide a list of books and supplies required for your class.
      Check out the MiniBase app with the Book List app, and the TeacherList app.
    • Share other useful information, like the lunch menu, gym schedule, or locker locations.
      Check out the Link Library app and the Document Viewer app to add available information.
    • Add assignments for the year. Share the assignments you’re ready to provide your students and their parents as needed.
      Check out the Assignment app.
    • Reusing content from last year?
      Use the Active/Inactive button to show or hide content. Make sure to update assignment dates to the current school year.
  • Update the calendar with important events to keep your parents and students 'in the know'!
    Check out the Calendar app for your scheduling needs.
