Join or leave a class as a co-teacher

This article is for teachers.

A teacher can invite you to teach their class as a co-teacher. As a co-teacher, you can perform most teacher tasks after you join. However, primary teachers and co-teachers have different permissions in Classroom.

What can I do as a co-teacher?

As a co-teacher, you can do the same tasks as the primary teacher, except you can't delete a class, remove the primary teacher, or mute another teacher in the class.

Respond to an invitation to co-teach

If you’re having trouble being added to a class, contact your admin. If you’re not in the same domain, they might need to update your domain's class membership settings

Tip: You can quickly accept or decline the invitation to co-teach by tapping the link in the email invitation.

To respond from Classroom: 

  1. Tap Classroom "".
  2. On the class card, tap Accept or Decline.

    Note: If you're a student in the class, tapping Decline doesn't remove you from the class.

    Accept
