Audience: District Administrators
District administrators can manage messaging settings for all schools in their district at the same time.
From the District Admin Dashboard, District Admins can customize messaging settings to apply district wide in alignment with district goals and regulations. You can choose a consistent communication experience for every school, or let schools decide!
District Wide messaging settings are only available for Seesaw For Schools District customers.
- In the District Dashboard under District Admin Tools, tap on District Wide Settings.
- Click on Messages.
By default, all district settings are set to “Let Schools Decide” and defers to whatever school/org admins have previously set.
The same actions that have been available to org admins from the School Dashboard are now available to district admins to perform across all schools in their district. Learn more about customizing messages settings here!
Select the setting dropdown for each Seesaw user role.
Carefully review the selected changes, and click Make Updates to proceed. Otherwise, select Cancel.
The updates will be reflected in your district settings immediately.
No. If a District-wide setting is set, it will supersede anything previously done at the org/school level. Org Admins trying to view the setting on the Org Dashboard will see the district setting (grayed out) with a comment that it has been set at the district level. If District Admins want schools to have flexibility in choosing settings, we suggest the default setting “Let Schools Decide”.
If a District Admin makes a change that needs to be undone, go back into the settings and select “Let Schools Decide” from the drop-down menu. This will revert all the school’s settings back to whatever had last been set before the District Admin made changes.
