Requesting a Pilot 

If teachers would like to request a JoeZoo pilot, they should encourage their school administrator to request one using this resource. Each school participating in a pilot requires an administrator, who will create a JoeZoo Administrator account to facilitate the pilot.

Teachers who are interested in a JoeZoo School PRO Pilot can request one using the following steps:
  1. Navigate to the App Center icon (four squares) located in the top navigation bar 
  2. Click "JoeZoo App" in the drop-down menu 
  3. Click Feature Packages (rocketship icon) in the top right
  4. Select "Request Pilot" under the package type
  5. Fill out the pilot request form
