NOTE: Teachers who are going on to your second year of using My Site: You do not need to create a new class every year.  Follow the instructions below to change your class list of students:

a.  On your old class page, open up the Portfolios page.
b.  Click on Manage Students and Xs will appear on the right side of your previous class names.
c.  Click on the x’s to remove them from your class-this doesn’t delete the students-it just removes them from your class. The portfolio work that you did will remain with them under the grade that you had them for and their new teacher will just have to change the grade.​
