What are ClassDojo's Collaboration Features?

ClassDojo Messaging

ClassDojo Messaging is a wonderful, instant, and safe way for a teacher and a parent to privately communicate with each other. Messaging is currently available between one Parent and one Teacher. All messages are private and only available to the sender and selected recipient. Many school districts require that all communications between Teachers and Parents are documented for safety and/or compliance reasons. Thus, ClassDojo messages cannot be permanently deleted by either the Teacher or the Parent. Teachers can remove a message they have sent from their messaging channel with a Parent, but this message will still be available by downloading the messaging history. Parent-sent messages cannot be removed by Parents or Teachers. Please have a School Offical contact us at if you need assistance removing a message sent by a Parent.  For more on ClassDojo Messaging, please see the following:
