Google Classrooms for 4th Quarter: To prevent Synergy/Google Classroom syncing issues it is highly suggested to create new Google Classroom(s) for 4th quarter. This is due to the number of assignments increasing as the quarter progresses causing Synergy to freeze in the syncing process and fail.
Be sure to enter the new Google Classroom code into Synergy. (Click here to revisit the instructions in stars.) Archive the old class(es) so there is no confusion for students (previous classes are still accessible in the archived class section). Also, be sure to share the new Google Classroom(s) to your leadership team; following their process.
