How can parents/caregivers get updates on student progress?

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.

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.
