3. Click on the “Approve” button. The banner will change to reflect the updated approval status.
4. The video will immediately become available in YouTube to anyone logged in to their District account.
Approving a video unblocks it for all SCUSD users. Please note that all approvals are logged and that approved videos may be blocked if they are reported to be inappropriate.
