As the Outschool community grows, we want to make sure that learners continue to have consistently high quality classes. Among other things, that means classes should start on time as scheduled.

Going forward, we’ll be sending email notifications when teachers are over 3 minutes late or miss a class. We have three goals with this change: increase the overall rate of classes that start on time, decrease the rate of classes that are missed, and to make expectations clear to new teachers.

We know that sometimes teachers change the schedule of a class by messaging parents, but without updating the scheduled meetings. We ask that if you want to change the schedule, you do make changes to the scheduled meetings–that way the official meeting times will be clear for families (and for Outschool, if we ever need to track down what happened)!

As a reminder, you can bookmark this page to check up on future product & policy updates for teachers.

Thanks for teaching on Outschool!
