Remote Learning: A Step-by-Step Guide for Teachers

We’re here to help you get your classroom community set up for remote learning. Just follow this guide to get your families and students connected, so you can stay in touch and keep students learning. 

1. Sign-up as a teacher 

Sign up for a teacher account at or via the iOS or Android app.

2. Join your school

Request to join your school so you have access to your school’s Directory and can view School Story. If your school isn’t on ClassDojo yet, you can add it.

3. Get verified 

Make sure to use your school email address and verify your email to get instantly verified. If your school has a ClassDojo Mentor, they can also verify you or you can email us at Be sure to include a copy of your official school ID card or a link to your school's staff directory.

4. Add your class

Create your class and add your students. Then print and send home parent invites or invite families via email or text. You can also share your class with co-teachers, specials teachers, aides, and School Leaders.

5. Welcome families to your classroom community! 

You can now post to Class Story to set your class up for success by sharing expectations for your transition  to a remote learning community. Your Class Story posts go out to all parents and students and appear within the parents' "Story" feed alongside School Story and Student Portfolio posts.

6. How will your school transition to a remote learning community?

Now that you’re all setup, now’s the time to share ideas with fellow teachers and staff as to how they’ll support student learning (wherever they are). Check out how to host a remote learning community and the creative ways you might use ClassDojo and be sure to pass these resources along to your school leader!
