What are school-managed email domains?

Many schools and districts have a dedicated email domain that they use to provide email accounts to students. For example, all students may have a school or district-issued email address ending in "@myschool.edu" or "@mydistrict.org". 

What are the benefits of adding a school-managed email domain?

School-managed email domains give your staff more control over student accounts. Albert teachers and admins will be able to:

  • Manually reset student passwords and usernames.

  • Restrict account creation and enrollment to one email domain to avoid students creating multiple accounts.

How do I add my school or district email domain?

  1. Send an email to success@albert.io, with the title "School Managed Email Domain" and the email domain(s) that you'd like to add to your school.

  2. A success representative will add the email domain to your school, or follow up with any questions.
