On the Administrator Dashboard, navigate to the "Staff" tab under "My School" to reach the Staff page. Here you will see a list of your staff. You have two options for adding teachers:

  1. In bulk via roster upload

  2. One at a time via manual form

How to add multiple teachers via roster upload

Adding teachers via a roster is recommended when you're adding multiple staff members at once.

Download our formatted staff roster and replace the sample information with your teacher data. You should have the following column headers in your .csv file:

  • Name

  • Email

  • Job Title

  • Classroom

For job title, choose either Teacher or Administrator. Classroom is an optional field, so leave this blank if you don't want to assign a staff member to a class.

On the Staff page, click the blue "Add Staff" button to open a dropdown menu and then click "Upload multiple staff via roster." You'll be brought to a new page where you can select your staff roster from the files on your computer; click "Upload" to reach a review page and then "Confirm" to confirm the upload. Playground will then automatically send an email with a sign-up link to all the staff added via this roster

How to add one teacher

To add an individual teacher, click the blue "Add Staff" button to open a dropdown menu and then click "Add single staff."

The "Add Staff Member" pop-up will appear. Fill out the teacher's information—only the Classroom field is optional—and then click "Save" to save the information and exit the pop-up. When you click "Save," Playground automatically sends the new staff member a sign-up email to join your center and activate their teacher account.

Inviting a teacher

Regardless of whether a teacher is added via roster upload or individually, sign-up emails are automatically sent as soon as the teacher is saved. You can send a teacher a signup email again by clicking on the three-dot menu at the far right of their row and clicking either "Sign-up link" to automatically send them a link or "Copy link" to copy a unique link that you can then share with your staff member.

Teachers need to create an account via the email link they receive. After making their account, they should download and sign into the Playground mobile app. Teachers must be signed into the app to sign students in, message parents, and submit wellness checks.

Editing a teacher

On the Staff page, find the teacher whose information you would like to edit then then click the three-dot menu on the far end of their row. A dropdown menu will open; click "Edit" to open the "Edit Staff Member" pop-up. You can now edit the teacher's name, email, job title (Administrator or Teacher), and classroom. Make any changes you'd like and click "Save" to save and exit the pop-up.

Deleting a teacher

On the Staff page, you can either delete individual teachers or multiple teachers at a time. To delete one teacher, click the three dots at the end of the row where that teacher's name is and select Delete.

To delete multiple teachers, check the box next to the name of each teacher to be deleted and then click the red Delete in the upper right-hand corner of the list.
