When you add a new class, the default class policies are derived from the policies section of the teacher's My Account Screen. You can change the policies of a class at any time. If you enter class policies, the students and parents can view them after they log in by going to the Class Information report.
You can use the toolbar or your own HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) to improve readability. If you are creating your HTML in an editor and then "cut and pasting" the resulting HTML into the field, be sure you click the "Source" button before pasting. You should also make sure you do not include all of the HTML code from a stand alone page because it will not work correctly.
If you use hyperlinks in your HTML code, make sure you have quotes around the URL parameters so MyGradeBook can pop up new windows when they are clicked.
If you want to include graphics from other web servers, please make sure the graphics are coming from a server providing https:// (Secure Socket Layer) access. If you link to pages that are not using SSL, teachers, parents, and students in your group will be shown messages repeatedly telling them that some of the content is unsecured.
Please note that the following are some but not all of the types of activities that are not allowed your in your HTML.
If you decide to use HTML, make sure that you add a space after any "<" symbols that you do not want interpreted as an HTML tag. Please note that <body>, <form>, <head>, <plaintext>, and <html> tags are automatically converted to their textual representations. If they are not converted, these tags can cause problems when you or your students try to view the pages on which they appear.
Special note about pictures and teachers that use the Internet Explorer
