Next year all staff & student accounts will be automatically created for Edmodo.


All existing users (staff & students) that want to merge their old account with the newly created account, must have the correct primary email address set in their current Edmodo account.


Non-merged accounts will not immediately be deleted, but they will be removed from the GCCISD subdomain. These accounts may eventually be deleted by Edmodo.

Staff Primary Email Address

The email address that will be merged is your current primary @gccisd.net email which is in the firstname.lastname@gccisd.net format.
NOTE: Some staff have the same name, so numbers have been added to your primary email address.


Failure to use this format will result in your account not being merged.


To verify the email address to use, watch the video below.

Finding Your Email Address

Student Primary Email Address

The @student.gccisd.net email address will be merged for students who currently have an Edmodo account.
NOTE: Students who do not currently have an Edmodo account do not need to take any action, an Edmodo account will be automatically created for them.


If a student does not know their @student.gccisd.net email address, the format can be seen below.

NOTE

  • Student's last names are the same as they appear in TEAMS. If a student has 2 last names in TEAMS, they will have 2 last names for their email.

  • If a student has a space in their name, they will NOT include it as part of their email.
    NOTE: It does count as a character for the first 3 letters.
    For example Mark Smith Thomas would be marksmiththomas###@student.gccisd.net

  • If a student has an apostrophe (') in their name, they will NOT include it as part of their email.
    NOTE: It does count as a character for the first 3 letters.
    For example J'dara Smith would be jdsmith###@student.gccisd.net

  • If a student has a hyphen (-) in their name, they WILL include it as part of their email.
    For example Ja-son Smith would be ja-smith###@student.gccisd.net

Steps to update the primary email address in Edmodo can be found at the link below.

At the end of a school year, it’s a good idea to archive your Edmodo Groups.

  • Archiving a Group makes that Group inactive and removes it from your Group lists.
  • You will still be able to access that Group, should you need to go back and view and restore any past activity from the Group.
  • All assignments and quizzes will remain in your history, so they can easily be copied to the new school year groups.
