How can we handle cases where a Teacher is also a parent or guardian at the school board?
D2L expects Teachers who are also parents or guardians to have separate userids/account from their Teacher account. At this time, we do not support a single account as the user experience would be compromised if they shared the same account.
Are parents and guardians able to see everything within the context of the entire school year?
Yes. If the child is enrolled in the course, the parent or guardian can see class activity feed, and upcoming online assignments and quizzes for the entire school year.
Can schools control what parents and guardians see on the Brightspace Parent & Guardian page with permissions?
Yes and no.
- Assignments with a due date or end date, and quizzes with an end date are automatically shared with parents and guardians in the Upcoming Work widget.
- Classroom activity feed posts are automatically shared with parents and guardians. Parents and guardians are not able to see any comments left by learners.
- Teachers can choose the Portfolio items that are shared with parents and guardians.
- Content files attached to assignments are automatically shared with parents and guardians.
Can I enable just the web application or just the mobile app? Can I disable the mobile app?
No. If Brightspace Parent & Guardian is enabled in your school, both the web application and mobile app are enabled and parents/guardians with an account can sign in to both.
