Teachers can navigate to their Faculty tab by hovering over their name at the top of the page and clicking Faculty in the drop-down menu. On the Faculty tab, teachers can view a list of other teachers at their school who are using Newsela. Administrators and teachers with Newsela admin access can remove other faculty members or update their information.
^Remove Teachers #omit-nav
If you have administrative access to remove faculty members within Newsela, you will see a Remove column on the Faculty tab. Click the X next to the faculty member's name. Type REMOVE when prompted to confirm. The faculty member will receive an email stating that an administrator at their school has removed their account.
Administrators can reinstate a faculty member's association with their school by sending a request through this form. Once reinstated, all classes created for the school will reappear.
Note: Anyone with a valid email address for a school can join a Newsela school. When an administrator removes a faculty member from the school, it does not delete the faculty member's account. The faculty member can log in and choose a new school. Classes the faculty member created for the school from which they were removed will no longer appear.
^Update Teacher Information #omit-nav
If you have administrative access to edit faculty members within Newsela, you will see an Edit column on the Faculty tab. Click the edit icon next to the faculty member's name. Change the name or email address and then click Save.
^Recover Username or Password #omit-nav
Teachers and administrators can recover their own passwords by clicking Forgot username or password on the Sign In window. They will then receive an email with their username and directions for resetting their password.
