Time zones

Outschool displays all times across the website in your local timezone. This includes class times, schedule request times, and Classroom post times, among others. We determine your time zone from your device settings. You can override your device’s time settings by setting your location on your account settings.

Time changes

Outschool accounts for daylight saving time (DST) when displaying times. You will not need to make any changes to your account to accommodate this time change.

If you or your teacher are located outside North America, please confirm your class time in advance by communicating via the classroom. Check your Schedule tab for a full list of meeting times displayed correctly in your timezone. If you believe that you’re seeing the wrong times on Outschool, please use the help button in the upper right corner of the site or write to support@outschool.com.

Changes should not affect any upcoming or in-progress classes if your location observes daylight saving time. For example, if you are currently enrolled in a class that meets at 6pm on Tuesdays, the class will still proceed each week at 6pm.
