Under ‘Codes’, you can click ‘Generate Codes’ to create Parent Portal codes for each of your students. This will generate the number of codes you chose in the settings. You can then download the codes to distribute.
For Parents to enroll they need the student code. You can distribute these codes or it can be found in their child’s ClassLink Profile Settings. Parents only need to use one code and one account even if they have multiple students.
Once a parent has the student code, they can register for an account at https://parents.classlink.com/schoolcode where schoolcode is replaced by the same schoolcode your child would use to log into https://launchpad.classlink.com/schoolcode or http://my.classlink.com/schoolcode.
Once they are on the Parent Portal site for your district, they can sign in if they've already registered or they can click on the "Become a member now" link to move to the registration page.
On the registration page, the parent will be asked their First Name, Last Name, Email Address, and Password. After checking the information you've submitted is correct, click "Sign Up".
On the next page you will be asked for the Registration Code that the parent was given by the district's administration or through their children's ClassLink account. Once they've successfully registered their code, they will be log into the ClassLink Parent Portal.
To assign applications to parents, go to add and assign apps and click on the assign button. You can assign out to the parent profile or the parent group.
Remember, the Parent Portal is a ClassLink account for Parents. This does not give them access to their student’s ClassLink apps.
