How can parents and caregivers get updates on their students' progress?
Parents and caregivers can often be eager to find out how their children are doing in school.
By adding the email address of a parent or caregiver to a student account, parents and caregivers are able to get regular updates on schoolwork. They'll be sent automated emails with information regarding scores, overdue work, and what is due next. Being more informed of their child’s work allows them to follow along with their progress, and get excited with them on their educational journey.
When students are emailed about a new task, reminded about an overdue task, or their assessment results are released, parents and caregivers can be sent a copy of the same email as well.
To enter parent email address information in bulk, just add it as a column to your class lists and send them to us (see How do I enrol my classes? for more details). Our Student Enrolment team can add them in bulk from there!
To enter or update parent email information for a few students, navigate to the Classes tab at the top of your Control Panel.
You can find the student in Classes either by manually searching for their name in the Search all classes and students... bar, or you can select their class and navigate to their account manually.
Select the student by selecting their name.
Select the Parent Email section, and enter the students' parent/caregiver's email address.
To add additional parent email addresses for a singular student select + Add Email. You can use this to add as many additional parent emails as you'd like.
To notify parents of an upcoming task or assessment, tick the corresponding box when creating the task or assessment. This means that parents will receive the same emails as their children about this.
