Navigate Edline

The homepage contains the basic information about the school or group website, and can include a calendar of events, news, internal or external links, a link to email a teacher or coach, and if your school uses compatible grading software, links to grade reports.

After you sign in, the My Edline menu will appear on the menu bar. This menu displays the following options: the My Classes and Shortcuts section with the list of the user’s classes and groups; the My Content section with the My File Locker, Private Reports, Combined Calendar, Future Classes, Old Class Materials, and My Submitted Forms options; and the My Account section with the Change Password, Manage Account, and Privacy and Terms of Use options.

  • The Edit This Page button allows users with proper permissions for a particular page to change both the design and content directly on the page.
