When you click on School Management, you'll see a variety of options for things you can do:
Under the Settings tab, you'll be able to allow students to set their screen accommodations, 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.
