2) Our system will now do a search on all the accounts with the matching zip code/postcode. Once you have found your school click on 'This is my school' to request to join. You will see the initials of the teachers currently in the school account.

Any teacher currently part of your school will be able to approve your join request. We do this to verify that you are part of the school.

Once your request has been approved you will be able to access your dashboard and add your students.
