The Parent Portal allows parents to register, login, and access ClassLink app resources provided by the district ClassLink Tenant Administrator. A parent account does not provide access to their child's data or ClassLink account.
Below are steps to prepare the parent portal in your ClassLink tenant.
ClassLink Management Console
Go to the ClassLink Management Console to access your Parent Portal options. Create a Profile
Create a Group
Click on the ‘Groups & Users’ section on the left side and choose ‘Groups’. Click ‘Add’ and create a parent group. Make sure to give this group a Parent profile.
Enable Parent Portal
Click on the ‘Parent Portal’ on the left and choose ‘Settings’. Turn Enable Parent Portal from ‘Off’ to ‘On’. Choose how many student codes to create (1-3) and create a 3 character code prefix. Click Save.
Find the parent group that you have created and click ‘Add’ to connect it to the Parent Portal. (You have to uncheck the box that says ‘selected Groups Only’)
Under Parent Portal, click ‘Login Page’. Choose your custom URL (you may want this to match your ClassLink URL). You can upload an image for the background and edit the Login Message text. Click Save.
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 with either their email or phone number. If they do not have an account yet, they will be prompted to create one.
On the next page the parent will be asked for the Registration Code that they were given by the district's administration or through their children's ClassLink account.
A verification code will be sent to the email or phone number the user provided. "OTP" stands for one-time-password.
On the registration page, the parent will be asked their First Name, Last Name, and Password.
Clicking "Sign Up" will take the user to OneClick.
If the user forgets their password, they can use an OTP to login. It is a one-time-password that is sent to a phone or email address. Clicking Send OTP will send a code to the user's phone or email. This code can be used to login. As the name implies, it can only be used once before it expires. One-time-passwords do not overwrite the a user's saved password.
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.
