Are you a Clever school? These directions are for you!

Welcome, or welcome back! Each year, unless otherwise requested, we clear all data from your LiveSchool site. This means all transactions, rosters, and students are no longer there, and Student/Parent accounts have been reset. If you're new to LiveSchool, your account is a blank slate! Either way, use this article to get everything up and running for a successful kick-off with LiveSchool!
