Restricting avatar building and accessory purchases (Grade 3+ only)

As a District Administrator, School Administrator, or Educator, you can restrict when students can design their avatars and purchase accessories in the Avatar Builder. When you restrict avatar building and accessory purchases, you choose which class you want to apply these restrictions to and which days and times to restrict access. During the days and times that you specify, students from this class will not be able to access their avatars or purchase accessories, regardless of which class they are attending during that time frame. To change other Grade 3+ settings, see Changing class settings for Grade 3+ students.

 Note

You can only restrict avatar building and accessory purchases for a class, and these restrictions affect all students in the class. If any of your students are assigned to other classes, they will be restricted from building their avatar and purchasing accessories during the day(s) and time(s) you specify for those classes as well. Use caution when setting these restrictions if any students in your class are assigned to other classes.

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.
