To create a CommonLit educator account, teachers must have a school-issued email that is registered in our system as an accepted school email. We recommend that you try to create a CommonLit educator account before your session to ensure we have your school-issued email registered as an acceptable email. If it is not, we recommend you reach out to use 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 will not remove these teachers' student accounts from CommonLit. If teachers sign up for a student account using their school email and are unable to create their teacher account, please point them to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can help them out.
