Back to School F.A.Q. (Admin)

We know that the beginning of the year starts early and Admins want to be prepared to make sure those first days go as smoothly as possible.  That may mean setting up new Classes and Groups, managing members and new Teachers who have joined your School or transiting those who have changed schools to a new Network. Here's a short list of some best practices Admins can use to get ready for a new school year well: 

1. Getting Students into their accounts:

We recommend that students reuse their same Edmodo Accounts year after year. If a student has an email address on their account, they can reset their own password directly though Edmodo's homepage by clicking the “Forgot Password” link. Administrators and Teachers from last year’s Classes can also reset passwords and locate usernames for Students.

2. Getting new Teachers and Students on my School Network: 

Make sure you have an updated list of your Staff and Students in your Manage Members view.  This may include removing anyone from your network, managing any join requests, sharing your School's Code with Teachers.

3. What do I do if a Teacher Has Left My School?

If a teacher has left your School or District with active Classes or Groups, please reach out to the Teacher and request that they remove access to their former Students on Edmodo. 

4. How do I remove Students that have graduated or left my School/District?

At the end of the school year, you may want to remove Students who have graduated or left your School Network. Admins can remove any member from their School Network directly. 

5. How can I train my Teachers on Edmodo?

Visit our Training Page for more information and resources on how to use Edmodo as a PD Tool to develop and lead Professional Learning Communities and Networks (PLCs & PLNs) to build teacher capacity.

6. What should I do if I am the Admin and I left my School or District?

If you left your School Network and you are the current Edmodo Admin, we recommend adding another Admin to your Network.

 

We recommend you share the Back to School F.A.Q. for Teachers and Edmodo Best Practices with your Staff before the end of the school year.
