There are two options that control the initial rights for student and parents. Most schools choose the setting as pictured below, which allows students and parents to self-register but restricts parent access to grades until the account is approved by a staff member.
Step By Step Guide
For schools that choose this more restrictive setting, we provide additional controls over permissions on a per-student basis.
1. Hover over the User Management menu and choose the Students -> Student Permissions
2. The Student Permissions page includes 4 settings for each student. Check the box next to the setting you wish to apply for a student before clicking the Submit button. The function of these settings are as follows:
The results will be based on the chosen permissions:
Approved: Approves the student for access to their account (Ignore this option if using the setting "Approval required for parents to view grades" as students are automatically approved).
Block Parent Access: Temporarily block parent access to a student's account.
Hide Last Name: Only the student's last initial is displayed with their first name in School Loop. Applies system-wide including teacher gradebooks.
Require Parent Verification: Blocks parent access to a student's information until their account has been approved by a staff member (If using the setting "Approval required for any access by parents or students", this setting is automatically applied to all parent accounts). This setting is useful for difficult situations when parental access for a particular student is in dispute and requires oversight by school administrators.
