Brightspace for Parents
It is important that all parents are familiar with logging into Brightspace. If a class goes to online learning due to a positive case of Covid-19, Brightspace will be the format used to engage students in online learning. The turnaround to online learning will be quick and will be much easier to navigate if we can assist with helping you with signing in to Brightspace now.
Please sign in to Brightspace for Parents if you have not already. The process is below.
Brightspace for Parents allows authorized parents and guardians to log in to Brightspace Learning Environment to see their child’s classroom activity feed. This helps parents engage with their young learners and maintain awareness of their upcoming work.
Different classrooms are using Brightspace in different ways, however all teachers are posting content to their Brightspace pages which will be of interest to parents and guardians.
