The Parent Portal Management Tool will allow those with the applicable permissions to manage parents, reset registration, add parents, add students to parents, etc. This lesson shows how to use that tool.
Where to Start
1. Click the Administration gear near the top of your screen, as shown circled above.
2. Under Parent Portal, click Manage Parents.
Search for a Parent
Go to the search box in the upper-right corner.
Type the parent's name and hit Enter on your keyboard.
Find the name of the parent for whom you are searching and click on his or her name where it is featured in blue.
Enter the parent's name and click Submit.
Then, to add a student, search for the student and click to link him or her (details below).
Search for the parent and click the parent's name (as described in the Search for a Parent section, above).
Click Reset Registration.
Note that doing this does not issue a new registration code; rather, it merely resets the parent's registration flag so that he or she can go through the process again and pick a new email and password.
Link a Student to a Parent
Search for the parent and click the parent's name (as described in the Search for a Parent section above).
Click Add Student, search for the student (as described above), and click to link the student.
Note that we use the standard Student Search when adding a student to a parent, so whatever access a user normally has (to view students) will also apply here. You might notice that the list of parents is not limited to just parents with students at the given school, as doing that would prevent users from adding new students to existing parents with students at different schools.
