Restricting Avatar and Accessory Purchases (Grade 3+ Only)

As a District Administrator, School Administrator, or Educator, you can restrict when students are able to design their avatars and purchase accessories in the Avatar Builder. Setting restrictions involves  determining which days and times to restrict, and then setting those parameters for the class.  

 Note

Restrictions can be set only at the class level, and affect all students in the class. If any of your students are assigned to other classes, know that they will be restricted in those classes as well, during the day(s) and times you set. Therefore, please use caution when setting restrictions.

Before you begin:

  • Check to see if any students in your class are assigned to other classes, and consider how your restrictions will affect them in those classes.
