    I also work in a special education setting and we had a very hard time effectively utilizing assistants while maintaining privacy settings during the stay at home order. As remote learning is likely to be a possibility at least for periods of time throughout this school year, this would be a tremendously helpful addition! Assistants are a vital part of the classroom community and this would significantly increase engagement and support for all.

    Thank you for your support Meghan. We have 2-3 per class full time, and they are all really supportive and we would love to be able for them to help with posts and feel part of it ...

    I echo the comments above.  I'm working to develop a task list for our paraprofessionals during virtual learning.  We currently have them in as co-teachers but I would feel more comfortable with some other designation as a teaching assistant or education assistant.

    This is very much needed. Teaching remotely with 2-3 paraprofessionals.  They need to be able to assist students in turning in their work.

    I need this feature to be added, as well, if I continue to use Seesaw.  My aide is not a credentialed teacher nor does she have a student in the class for parent access to work.  It is actually a legal liability for her to have the same permissions as a teacher but without granting her access to the class platform her usefulness as an aide is severely limited.

    I completely agree. We have student teachers at the minute who need access to a teacher account due to creating remote learning lessons. However, this gives them full access to send messages to parents, send announcements, remove work and approve adults to children’s journals. It just isn’t safe at all.

    I would also like to echo the above comments. We have upto 4 special needs assistants per class in our school and a seperate account tier would be really useful.

    It would be especially useful to have this permission tier now we are in lockdown again - we would really like our teaching assistants to be part of our classroom while we are working with our students remotely...

    I would like to support the previous posts. We would also like our TA's to have access to their classes but with this special permission tier.
