When you click on School Management, you'll see a variety of options for things you can do:
Under the Schools tab, you'll be able to archive, delete, create or edit the existing rosters of your schools. You can also reset your schools for a new year.

Under the Time Settings tab, you'll be able to edit your time zone and the duration of your school year. This is important to reflect accurate reporting over the course of the correct year. For more information on how to do this, click here.
Under the Permissions tab, you'll be able to set your staff permissions and decide who is allowed to make modifications to curriculum, your rosters, and more. This can be helpful in ensuring that you are the one managing data, or allowing teachers and school administrators to do so as well.
