When you create a Class Notebook in OneNote, each student added to the notebook shares access to its Content Library and Collaboration Space. Each student also has their own notebook, which contains a private workspace only you and they share.
If you are using a OneNote Class/Staff Notebook created in Microsoft Teams, you can only add/remove members in Microsoft Teams. You cannot add/remove students or members using the Class Notebook Wizard online.
Students need a Microsoft 365 account at your school before they can be added to your Class Notebook.
