News River for Students

Everyone likes to be up-to-date with the latest news. Edsby makes this easy! When you log in, you will see the News River across the top of your Home Screen.

Each school and district has its own news stream. The News River collates news from all streams.

Use the arrows to navigate through the River.

Submitting a News Article

Creating a News Article is easy and anyone can submit a proposed news item. Navigate to the School Page by clicking the gear icon in the top right and selecting the name of your school or district.

Click the plus icon in the header.

Or, if you are using a browser, click your school’s name in the top left corner of your Browser Home Screen. Click Submit an Article.

Fill in the form with a headline, a picture, and some text. News River articles also support attachments.

To add an attachment to the article, click one of the attachment icons depending on the style of attachment. Click Submit.

When you press submit, it is sent to the School Page. However, it is pending and only school administrators can see it until it is approved.

They have the option of approving it, editing it, or rejecting it.

Reading the News

Once the article has been approved, others in Edsby will see the article in their News River. Articles with attachments have a visual paper clip indicator.
