What To Do

When creating an event from either the public or private calendars you can choose one of the following display options:

  • Use the same date for private calendarto have an event display in both the public and private calendars on your site. (i.e. posting information about parent teacher conferences, report card distribution, etc.)
  • Private Calendar to have it available privately only. (i.e. posting events for only logged in users to see. (i.e. Reminders about Professional Development days, posts about when grades are due, etc.)
  • Public Calendar to have it available publicly only. (i.e. posting events that are only relevant to public visitors of your site. (i.e. Reminders about Pre-K enrollment, information about weather or school closings, etc.)
