To create a CommonLit educator account, teachers must have a school-issued email that is registered in our system as an accepted school email. It is recommended that you try to create a CommonLit educator account before your session to ensure that your school-issued email is registered in our system as an acceptable email. If it is not, we recommend you reach out to us at least 2 business days before your professional development session requesting that we add your school or district's domain to our system as a school email. This will ensure your teachers can sign up on the spot during a professional development session.
Please note: Should teachers choose to sign up as a student and join your sample class for demo purposes, they should not create a student account using their school-issued teacher email. Since emails can only be tied to one, unique CommonLit account, if a teacher signs up as a student using their school email, they will not be able to use this email to create their teacher account.
Instead, teachers should sign up as a student using a personal email or no email at all. Deleting individual names from the roster or the demo class entirely does not delete these teachers' student accounts from CommonLit. If a teacher signs up for a student account using their school email and is unable to create their teacher account, please point them to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can help them out.
