You're now ready to use and explore your first class on SchoolStatus Connect! 🙌

Class Settings

You can always go back to the settings by clicking the three dots and Settings.

You can configure your settings based on your preference. Don’t forget to click on the Update Class button after you make any changes on this page.

Assign Your Class To Your School

From your Home page, you can assign your classroom to a School and select to be the SchoolStatus Connect School Leader. If someone already has claimed your school on SchoolStatus Connect, you can ask to be invited. They can easily find your classroom if they search by your email address. 

Change Your Class Avatar

The class photo will appear on every Announcement, Event, and invitation that you will send. This is a great way to show parents/guardians what kind of class you have by being creative in using an image or logo that represents your class. 

Change Your School's Address

If you need to change the address of your school, please contact SchoolStatus Connect at  Provide the full name of your school and the correct and complete address so we can update it for you.

Create More Classes

You can create new classes on SchoolStatus Connect if you are teaching multiple classes or just looking to create groups that would need a separate communication and scheduling channel.  Just click on the top left three lines of your screen to pull a side menu and select "Add New Class" under the list of your existing classes. Further details can be seen here.

Use Your Demo Class

Demo Class is a great way to see your real one in action especially if it is the first time you are using SchoolStatus Connect. This demo class can be accessed in the classroom Settings.

Graduate Your Class

If it is that time of the year and you are looking forward to the summer, you can let everyone know that the classroom will be archived and choose to "Graduate This Class". We know it can be a sad moment! 

That’s it! 😊
