How Can School Leaders Post to the School Story?

Web, iOS, Android

From the Web

School Story is a whole-school messaging board. Posts will appear to all parents connected to an active class in the School Directory. Most schools use their School Story for announcements, closure days, reminders for special events, etc. You can post images, videos, files, events or text using the ClassDojo website. 

School Leaders can post to the School Story on the website by following these instructions:

  1. Log into your School Leader account
  2. At the top of the dashboard, on the left side of your screen, select your school’s name, then select the “Home” tab
  3. In the box which reads “What’s happening at your school?” you can add any text you would like to the post.
  4. Click "Photo/Video" to add a photo; click "File" to upload an attachment (we currently support the following file attachments: PDF, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Text, and CSV); click "Record" to record a video to post; click "Event" to add an event. Add your text in the "What's happening at your school" box
  5. Click on "Post" to publish

You will be able to view the number of parents who have viewed a School Story post and use these numbers to build school-wide stats. 

Parents can comment on School Story posts if you have enabled commenting for parents. For more on how you can moderate the School Story as a School Leader please take a look at this tutorial
