What is Seesaw? What can it do? 
 
 
How do I set up Seesaw?
 
Elementary: CCUSD creates all elementary Seesaw classes (see note below for more information) This video shows how to adjust settings & notifications. 
 
 
Go to Seesaw website or access through teacher clever portal, then login using your gmail account.  Please do not change your class created name.
 
Note: CCUSD creates all elementary Seesaw accounts so students have access to all classes (art, Makerspace . . .) using the Clever portal.  The Seesaw classes are able to be populated once Aeries class rosters are set in the beginning of the year, then overnight Seesaw class can be created & populated. 
 
Secondary: Learn how to create a Seesaw class, add students, & adjust settings/notifications 
 
 
 
1) Go to the Seesaw website, then login as teacher using your gmail account.
 
2) Create a new class/import students
- Middle School: import classes from Google Classroom
