If you don't have a school district, put the school name in both text boxes.
What if my school already exists on Chalk?
If your school already exists within Chalk, you will see a prompt to join. Click on “Request to Join.” This will send a notification email to your Chalk team’s administrator showing your request. They will then be able to send you an invite email allowing you to join the Instruction team.
Once you have received this email, follow the instructions under How do I Join an Existing School to be linked to your school.
In the meantime, you can click Go to Planboard to get started.
This isn’t my school. Don’t worry. If the school shown isn’t your school, you can simply click on the “Create a new school instead” link in order to create a new school.
