Planning for Rostering

In order to serve our varied customers, HMH has a wide variety of rostering options to choose from.

For 2020, HMH has created a new self-service Import Management wizard to better assist you with a simple and straightforward interface to make your rostering experience as smooth as possible.

HMH is also excited to announce our partnership with ClassLink to assist with your rostering needs. As part of this partnership, ClassLink Roster Server Lite is offered free of charge to all HMH customers through the 2021/2022 school year. Learn more here.
