This article explains the process of becoming a part of a student or a set of students' Learning Management Teams to access messaging team lists for the students. It also answers some frequently asked questions.
The Learning Management Team (LMT) is comprised of a student, their parents, teachers, and other people tracking the student's progress.
These people can include certificated members of the school or district and Afterschool Professionals (people working with the student who, with parental consent, have access to homework information and communications rights).
Learning Management Team members are always in the loop!
Any Staff member who clicks the New Message button in the Learning Management Team section of the Student Record can address a message to any or all of the members of that student's Team.
Teachers have access to the same list of team members ("their parents and teachers (individuals)") when addressing a LoopMail message. Parents and students can access the list of Teachers and other members on the Team by clicking the Email all teachers link from their portal homepage.
There are two ways to become a part of a student's LMT:
- Go to a personal tracker and add the student or a set of students. You will automatically become a part of the Learning Management Team for all the students you track.
- Go to the Student Record and click the Join Team button in the Learning Mgmt Team section. You will be asked to create a new tracker or add the student to an existing tracker.
NOTE: You can track as many students as you want in a single personal tracker.
Q: I do not see the 'Join Team' button in the student record. Why?
A: The student is probably in your class, so you are already on the learning management team as a teacher.
Q: I made a student tracker, but I am not appearing on any of the students' learning management teams. Why?
A: The tracker is school-wide. Only personal trackers place you on the learning management team of students in the tracker.
Q: How do I remove staff from the learning management team?
A: An admin can auto-login to the staff's account and delete the tracker.
- Click on the tracker to enter it.
- Click 'Delete Tracker' on the right side.
For individual students, the admin can go to the Student Record page and click 'Leave Team' on the right side.
