Your Classes are your digital bulletin boards. These can be predetermined by the Admin, or you can choose to create your own. They are your means of communication with Parents and Students using different types of Posts. You can create classes for subjects, extracurricular activities, and anything else you can think of. The School Boards are created by the Admin and target multiple Groups. These are generally going to include multiple users such as "Whole School" or "Senior School". However, you can only create your own Classes, not School Board.
