How Can School Leaders and Admins Enable or Disable Class Chats for the Whole School?

Web, iOS, Android

From the Web

Class chats are a great way to easily bring all families connected to a class together in one place so you can stop answering the same questions over and over — and let families coordinate birthdays and playdates. This chat is visible to all families and teachers connected to the class so the classroom teacher can monitor the conversation, if necessary. Teachers can also moderate the Class Chat by deleting messages and removing individual users.

As a School Leader, you have the ability to control communication settings at your school by enabling or disabling Class chats for your whole school. If Class chats are disabled, teachers will not be able to turn this feature on in any class at your school. If Class chats are enabled, teachers will still need to turn this feature on manually on a class-by-class basis.

Here’s how to turn Family chats on or off for your school:

1. Log into your account and click "Settings" below your profile picture to access your school's settings
