The Clever Teacher Portal has a new look and feel. Take the Enhanced Teacher Portal for a spin.
03/04/2024
Clever is updating the Teacher Portal with a fresh new look and feel to make it easier for teachers to find and use resources. The current “classic” Teacher Portal experience will be retired in July 2024 and all teachers will be transitioned to the new, Enhanced Teacher Portal. Starting March 5, 2024, the Enhanced Teacher Portal will be available for teachers to preview. Teachers can switch back and forth between the classic and enhanced portal until July 2024. Teachers can enable this feature by clicking the Preview button on the Teacher Pages. We recommend teachers take the time to preview the changes now to get used to these enhancements.
