Groups that use the District Integration capabilities of MyGradeBook will follow a different method to add teachers to the group account.
1. Creating New Teacher Accounts on MyGradeBook
Listing individuals in the Teachers file will establish a MyGradeBook account for each teacher. These teacher accounts will be associated with your group automatically.
2. Adding Teachers with Existing MyGradeBook Accounts to Your Group
Step 1: Teachers must associate their existing accounts with your group. They do this by entering your Group ID and Teacher Sign-Up code on their individual account's My Account page.
Step 2: As group manager, you will need to enter a Teacher ID for the teacher. You do this by logging in as Group Account Manager, clicking the Integration link at the top of the screen, and then clicking the link for "Teachers With No IDs". You should enter the Teacher ID number that is used in your district's information system.
When you upload the District Integration files to your group account, classes will be created in the individual teacher grade book accounts. Only the classes that are created through this District Integration method will appear in the extract of grades that you can transfer to your district's information system.
Group License Information
Each teacher in your group will need the Group ID and Teacher Sign Up Code to add to their individual account information and indicate that their subscription fee is covered by your group license. A teacher must first have or create an account. Once the teacher has an account, the group sign up information can be entered in the Payment Info section on the teacher's My Account screen.
The Group ID is a unique identifier of your group license. Please include Group ID whenever you communicate with us about your group account.
Teacher Sign Up Code
The combination of this code with the Group ID enables a teacher to sign up as part of your group account within their My Account screen.
When you registered for a group account, you indicated how many individual teachers would be part of your group. Pricing is calculated on a per teacher account rate. View the licenses in use on the Licenses Used Report, using the link at the top of the Group Account Management screen.

Custom Header Code
Use this section to create a header at the top of the screens that you, your teachers and their students see.
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.
· You cannot include advertisements or promotions for products.
· You cannot link to commercial sites unless it is for educational purposes.
· You cannot perform cross-site scripting.
· You cannot include disparaging remarks in a custom header.
· You cannot include obscene, illegal, or libelous material.
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
This issue does not affect students that are taking quizzes.. This issue only affects teachers that use the Internet Explorer when they are creating, modifying, and taking quizzes via the
"Take Quiz" link in the Quiz tab menu. If you are going to include pictures in your quizzes and you use the Internet Explorer web browser,
you should store your pictures on a web server that supports SSL and use https instead of http for paths to your images so you can avoid the security warnings that the
Internet Explorer will show you when the main page is accessed via https but the images are not. If you must use the Internet Explorer and your school does not have a web server that
supports https or will not allow you to store your images on it, you should remember to click "NO" when the Internet Explorer asks you if you if you
only want to view secure images.
Once you enter a header and click save, the header changes immediately to reflect your custom header. Any users in your group, who are currently logged in, will have to log off and log in again before they can see your new header.
The save button stores updates to the Group Account Management screen.
The change manager button is used when you want to let a different person who already has a teacher account take over your role as group manager. When you successfully give an existing teacher control of the group, the passwords associated with the group account are changed to the values used by the teacher and you will be automatically logged out.
The cancel button ensures that none of the additions or changes made on the Group Account Management screen are saved.
Selecting your language/country only affects the date format.
Changing your time zone affects the values displayed and used for the dates and times in your account.
Changing your time zone does not affect date formatting. Use the Language/Country drop down if you want to use a different date format.
