How to reject/approve a teacher requesting to join your school

Teachers will only be able to view students’ data once their request to join has been approved. It is important that you only accept join requests from users who you know are teachers in your school. To be safe, make sure that their email address is a known address to you. If you are unsure either check with another teacher or click Reject.

If you don’t see any requests pending to join, it may be that another teacher has already approved it or the requester has cancelled their request.

This guide explains the two methods of rejecting/accepting a teacher request.
