Teams Permissions

As a reminder to staff, Microsoft Teams has two distinct components:


  • For staff: The full interface includes file sharing and channel spaces.
  • For staff and students: A Teams meeting link for live video instruction or meetings.


HCPS does NOT endorse using the full interface of Teams with students.


Teachers who have created Teams for professional use should remember to set their Team to private, otherwise anyone in HCPS, including students can access and join the Team.
