How to move your teacher account to a new school
This guide explains how to move your Sumdog teacher account to a new school. It’s important to link your account to your new school before you add students to your class as students to the wrong school will provide access to student information for other teachers registered at the school. Find out how to add new students to your classes.

Manually moving your teacher account to a new school
These instructions explain how to move your teacher account from your old school to your new school.
When you move school you will not be able to access the student data from your previous school. Students are linked to a school account not any individual teacher account.
Click ‘Settings’ at the top of your teacher dashboard.
Click ‘MANAGE’ in the Manage teachers box.
Besides your name, you’ll see the option to ‘Leave School’. Click on this to leave the school account.
Once you have left the school you will be able to search and request to join your new school account. School accounts normally require at least one teacher linked to the account. If you are the only teacher registered on the school account, email email@example.com and we will be happy to manually remove you from the school account
Accepting a join invitation from a teacher at your new school
If a teacher at your new school has invited you to join the new school’s account, click on the link in the notification email and click ‘Switch schools’ at the bottom of the page to confirm the move from your previous school. Your teacher account will then be moved to the other school account and you will be removed from your current school account. This will not move any student accounts.
If you are not currently teaching at the school which sent you the invite, reject the invite by clicking on the link in the notification email and pressing ‘Cancel’ at the bottom of the page. Your teacher account will then remain in the current school account until it has been removed.
