The My School page acts like a handy homepage for your Classlist site, capable of providing stacks of useful information to your parent users. You can customise the page through the Manage School page under the School tab on the Admin portal.
Ambassadors can edit any of the sections by clicking on the pink pencil icon. Parents and other Admin users will only be able to view this information, not edit it.
The page itself is broken down into a number of sections:
Adding a picture and logo to your school page will really help parents connect Classlist with your school while adding a personal touch.
Ask your school office for a .jpg of the school logo, then upload it to your Classlist site by clicking on the circular 'Change Photo' button (highlighted above). This will bring up a small dialogue box, allowing you to add your own logo.
You can also add a cover photo for your school; this picture is slightly larger and is ideal for pictures of the school itself! Just click the camera icon in the space where the default cover photo appears (highlighted above).
This allows you to edit your school's name and address, as well as add a contact number and email address. Remember, this page aims to provide your parents with as much useful information as possible, so it is best to add the school's main office contact number and email, this can be very handy in a pinch!
Ambassadors can add a number of useful links here for parents to access by clicking on the little pencil icon.
You can use this space to direct parents to any useful sites you can think of - try adding the school's homepage page as a minimum! If you want to upload documents which will remain available for a long time (such as PTA minutes or school uniform order forms), we recommend you use Google Docs or a similar file-sharing system, and add the link for parents to access in this Helpful Links section. Click here for more information.
The right hand side of the page features key contacts for parents in your Classlist community as well as giving them a visual representation of how the Administrator structure works. If you and your team have not already uploaded a profile picture, make sure you do now: enabling parents to see your faces really helps boost morale and makes you more approachable.
You can also manage your administrators from this page, for more information on how to do this, please click here.
The community mission statement is a fully customisable text space. This allows you to complete freedom to write down your PTA's mission statement. It's a great space to introduce yourself as a group to the parents, as well as ask for volunteers or just ask them to contact you if they have any further questions.
