User Accounts

On the User Accounts page, you can see your user account information (including the school activation code, subscription expiration, and school contact), and you can change your user password.

The way you entered your name when you set up your account determines how your name will appear in the Informational Letter and Teacher Lists. To change how your name appears, edit your User Account information. To use a title (Mr., Mrs., Miss, Ms., Dr., etc.), enter it as part of your first name (Mrs. Jane Doe) or in place of your first name (Mr. Doe).
