  2.  +Invite Others is an option that can be used when adding staff to a staff layer or a non-classroom teacher to a grade layer. This will allow your support staff to receive school wide and their grade level posts. As a staff, they can only post to class groups they are connected to and/or the staff in their layer.
  3. The pencil icon will allow you to edit the layer name. Click the pencil icon > erase the current name > enter in your desired grade name > Click Save.
  4. You can delete a grade layer by clicking the ‘x’ box. All classes must be deleted or moved to another layer before allowing you to delete the grade layer.

How To Create A Class - Options

This will send an email to the teacher to create an account to connect if they do not have one or an invite pending to be accepted (if they have an account).

Option B:

  1. Disperse the ‘Create a Class - Teacher Addition’ to your teaching staff.
  2. In the organization’s admin account, go to ‘My Network’ > Choose your school under Organization > Locate the teacher’s grade layer and select ‘+invite classroom teacher’.
  3. Once the teacher has accepted your invite and chose an existing class or created a class (following the guide in step 1), the selected class group(s) will be added to the grade layer. You can see the class groups by clicking the ‘+’ next to the layer name.
