A new school year means a fresh start. Whether you are new to Calvert Learning or building on what you began in a previous school year, our goal is to set you, your teachers, and your students up for success. We have assembled our top back-to-school resources to help you prepare for the new school year, learn about the newest enhancements, engage parents and guardians, and explore all the features Calvert Learning has to offer for your educational needs.

Prepare for the New School Year

Before teachers and students can begin to utilize Calvert Learning in the new school year, there are a few steps you need to take.

  • Update users: Most likely, you will need to make edits and additions to the students, teachers, and administrators in your account. You can make changes one at a time or in bulk by making edits to your Genius master upload template.
  • Update sections: Once all user accounts are updated, the next step is to ensure that teachers and students are assigned/enrolled in the correct sections.

Detailed instructions on how to update users and sections can be found in the Calvert Learning Genius user guide. You also have access to a collection of self-guided resources on the Calvert Learning getting-started page, and Edmentum’s team of consultants and our support representatives can help you with this process.
