Seesaw Family App - Ability to see assigned activities

Based on parent feedback from distance learning, it would be beneficial for family members to be able to view assignments in the Seesaw Family app.

  • Agreed!  This one is a massive, massive need.  

    The best way for a K-5 parent to hold their child accountable in home learning is to know what is queued up in their activity feed.

    Because parents could not see their child's activity feed in the Family app, our teachers had to put assignments in a Google Doc.  Not ideal since not every parent has a Google Account.

    Parents can look at activities at their child's device, but parents have work to do of their own and do not sit right next to their child.  Additionally, parents looking over their child's shoulder means they are seeing work by other students - not ideal due to data privacy concerns.

  • This is so important! The family app feels useless to me without this. I need to see my kids' assignments so that I can help them plan for the day or the week.

  • I was hoping assigned activities would be available for parents, to help kids stay organized. Is this a feature that can be added?

  • Also agree with this suggestion. With virtual learning families need a way to see all the To Do assignments, not just the completed ones.

  • Yes, yes, yes!!!! I have had a lot of parents during remote learning asking if this is possible!  Families at home need a way to see what their student has to do or still has in progress to help keep their student accountable during remote learning. They want to help but don't always know what their student has turned in or still needs to complete unless the teacher communicates this separately. It would be beneficial for parents to have this all in one place(the Seesaw Family App) for quick and fast access.

  • Adding to the crowd - as a program director, I've had many families during remote learning report how disappointed/frustrated they are that they cannot see assignments in the Family app.

  • I just came on here to find out how to view my child's assigned work on Seesaw, and found all of these comments requesting this as a feature instead. Yes, please add the ability for the family to view all of the assigned work!
