Use OneNote Staff Notebook in Teams

Every staff team comes with its own linked OneNote Staff Notebook. Your Staff Notebook is a digital notebook that cultivates educator collaboration at the school and district level.

Teams delivers these essential components of the OneNote Staff Notebook experience:

  • Staff Member Notebooks -- a private space shared only with the staff leader and staff members. Professional development, lesson plans, classroom observations, evaluations and parent communication are among the possibilities.

  • Content Library -- a read-only space for storing information on policy, procedure, school planning and more.

  • Collaboration space -- where multiple staff members can share, organize, and collaborate, from lesson plans and meeting notes to department-wide initiatives.
