The ClassReach Documentation for teachers

Adding Homework

As an teacher you have the ability of adding homework for the students within your sections. Homework are a great way to provide information on an assignment and allow for easy online submissions. You can set homework to be visible just for guardians or for both students and guardians, however you cannot set homework to be just for students.

Note: The Homework can be renamed by a school admin. Some common alternative names for Homework are Assignments and Courseworks.
