View the Class or Activity Calendar

The Combined Calendar feature in Edline enables you to view all of your class events, assignment due dates, test dates, sports events, club meetings, and general school activities on a single, personalized calendar. It can act as your To-Do List. For students, this feature is a great way to track all your academic and extra-curricular activities. For parents, this feature helps you keep tabs on all of your children’s scholastic and extra-curricular activities. Teachers, counselors, coaches, and other school or district administrators can monitor meetings, general school events, and their class schedules all from their own Combined Calendar.
