Seesaw classes are automatically created for you each year if your class is rostered in Infinite Campus. If you do not have classes automatically created for you (such as for intervention, EL, speech, SPED, etc.), please create a help desk ticket and list the names of the students you need added to the class.

Do not manually create your own classes.

Do not create your own login
