Manage pending teacher requests

For administrators with Remind Hub.

Our teacher approval feature helps you safeguard your community by providing you with more oversight into your teachers on Remind. When you activate teacher approval, you can use the Pending teachers section of your people list on your administrator dashboard to approve or deny requests to be a teacher by anyone who wants to join your organization on Remind. 

If you are interested in turning on teacher approval for your organization, please contact your Customer Success Manager or Support Representative. 

This article provides instructions on how to review pending teacher requests.

Step 1: Check your pending teachers

As an administrator, you can see when participants join your school and request a teacher role from their Remind account. Select Pending teachers at top right of your People list in your school dashboard to view a list of pending requests.


Step 2: Approve or deny teacher requests

Only approved teachers will have the teacher role in your organization. These teachers will be included in organization-wide, role-based announcements for teachers. Approved teachers can also add participants directly to their class without having to wait for the them to accept an invitation to join.

Note: Teachers cannot directly add users to staff classes.


You can verify their teacher role at your organization by selecting the teacher in Pending teacher requests and viewing the email(s) and/or phone number linked to their Remind account.

To approve a participant as a teacher, just click Approve, and they will show up as with a teacher role in your people list.

Note: Teacher accounts provisioned by a SIS sync or directly added by an administrator will be automatically approved.

Denying a teacher request 

Pending teachers and non-approved participants will not have the role of teacher at your school. Once you deny their request, these participants will have no role. You may add an optional message after selecting Deny.

Additionally, if you change their role or remove them from the school, these participants will no longer show up in the pending teachers list.


Afterwards, you can navigate to your people list to manage your participants, including changing their role, removing them, etc.
