About Student Accounts

Do I have to verify each of my students' emails?

What happens when I close my class?

When you close a class, your students will be removed from your class but their stories will still be visible on the site and available in your classroom library. Students who have a parent email associated with their account will still be able to log in and use the site as a regular user. You will not be able to reopen your class.

What happens if a student forgets their password?

You can manually reset a student password from within your Classroom Dashboard. First, navigate to Classrooms (either from the side menu or the dropdown menu next to your user icon). From there, find the correct class, select the Students tab, and click Reset Password. You can then reset the password at the student level using the Settings menu.
