Parent access for year 2 of Seesaw for Schools

With Seesaw for Schools, parents or family members connect to their child's journal once and then stay connected for their entire time at your school. 

For each new class created in Seesaw for Schools, parent access is turned OFF by default. This means that parents will not see any posts for their child, even if they are connected to their journal.

Once a teacher turns 'Enable parent access' to ON for their class, any previously connected parents will start to get updates for their child and do not need to reconnect to their child. Teachers can also invite new parents at this time. 

How to Enable Parent Access for a Single Class (Admins and Teachers): 

  1. Sign in as teacher
  2. Click on your profile icon
  3. Click on Manage Class
  4. Turn Enable Parent Access ON
  5. Previously connected parents will start to get updates. You can also invite any new parents at this time.
