Co-teaching [Team]

There is great value in having two professionals working simultaneously to provide better instruction in a classroom. A set of teachers not only bring in a different set of expertise for their students, but get the added benefit of sharing in the responsibility of instruction.They bring in a multitude of approaches into the classroom helping in student growth. Co-teaching can bring a classroom a more accessible curriculum for all students as differentiation and attention to each student's individual needs become a lot easier to accomplish.

Archive / Delete Class

If your main menu is filled with too many classes, or has classes you are not teaching at the moment you can choose to archive the classes. This will save the classes for later review. If you don't need your class or it's related data you can delete it altogether. This means the class and it's associated data will be unrecoverable.
