Edit primary and co-teachers

Primary teachers are the owners of the classroom and the class Google Drive folder. If you are a Little SIS Sync customer, the primary teacher is the only one who can accept the provisioned classes. A co-teacher is someone that can be added to a classroom to help coordinate class activities. Both of these teacher designations can be managed within our tool, either in the individual classroom or in a bulk action.

Co-teachers can be added via single class or bulk action. Once you initiate the single class or bulk action, the Add co-teachers to stepper is the same. If you are an administrator who wants to join the class as a co-teacher or student, see Joining a class as a co-teacher or student.
