eBoard Basics

What is an eBoard?
An eBoard is a web site that is extremely simple to update.

How can an eBoard make my life easier?
An eBoard allows you to communicate quickly and easily with your students and their parents. It allows you to post class announcements, calendar events, homework assignments, and more on the web so that they are easily accessible by everybody.

How do I get started?
To get a new eBoard account, e-mail Linda Sorrentino at lsorrentino@trschools.com.

How do I access my eBoard?
There are two ways to access your eBoard:

  • Go to the district home page > Directory > eBoard Search and enter an eBoard name.
  • Visit http://www.eBoardname.tomsriver.site.eboard.com. (Be sure to replace "eboardname" with the actual name of your eBoard.)

  3. In the control panel, you can add additional tabs (cork boards), change your admin password, change board colors or add a "read password" -- a read password will require all users of your board to know that password; you can also add a title such as Welcome to Mrs. Smith's eBoard

How do I archive a note for future use?
When you are in edit mode, click on "edit note" for the note you wish to archive. At the bottom of the note you will see "move this note to a new tab." Click on the down arrow and select "archive." In this way, you can save your note for future use but no one else will see it.
