Creating an Announcement

Frequently Asked Questions

Does everyone have permission to create an announcement?

This is a new permission. An educator is grandfathered in as a default, but an administrator can adjust the permission if desired. All new educators added will not have this permission, by default.

Can I create an announcement for a select group of students?

No, this feature will send out an announcement to all students in the school/district, depending on the setting selected in step three. An email is the best form of communication for a small group of students.

Use this page to make an announcement to one or multiple schools.
