What Can I Do as a Parent on ClassTag?

Updated on August 8th, 2017 by

Parents love ClassTag because it enables them to become partners in their child's education, catch magical day to day moments they would otherwise miss, and easily stay in the loop with all announcements, activities, and  events for their child's school in one place. 

Home Page

This is the best place to start your sessions on ClassTag. Here you will find announcements, pictures, the week ahead with a summary of all upcoming activities. 

You can also add your interests and skills and share it either with a teacher or everyone in the class. It is a great opportunity to say how you might be able to help and what you are interested in. 

Activities

The activities is where you can see all of the upcoming and past activities for your child's class.  You'll see detailed information on events including starting and ending dates and times, locations, requests for volunteers and items, as well as signups for Parent Teacher Conferences.

To sign up, simply click on '+' circle to sign up and come back to change it at any time as you need. You can also add to your personal calendar right from there. 

Class Directory

The Class Directory is where you will find a list of all the students in your child's class as well as their parents names, and if the parent has chosen to share their contact information with other parents, you will see their email or phone number.  

As you are getting set up on ClassTag, it is great to upload the photo / avatar for yourself and your child so everyone gets to know you as well as invite any co-parents or guardians to your family to help them stay in the loop as well. 

Photos

The photos page is where you can find class photos, event photos, and also upload your own photos to share with other members of the class.  This is a great place to connect and share the memories even if you can't be present at an event!  If you have photos from an event, share them with the class!

Your Profile

In your profile you will be able to update information about yourself, upload profile pictures for yourself and your children, invite family members to join as well as modify your class membership. To access profile, please pull the left menu behind the three blue lines in the top left. 

Account Settings

In your account settings you will be able to update your contact information as well as adjust mail preferences. ClassTag gives you flexibility and customization so that communications can best meet your preferences! To access account settings, please pull the left menu behind the three blue lines in the top left. 

You can add contact information to your account under 'Account Information' to be able to select email or sms as the primary communication method. You will also be able to select your preferred language for all communications. 

In 'Communication Preferences' please select which communications you would like to receive and the delivery method: email or sms. 

Communications

You can communicate with teachers and parents using ClassTag's conversations. You can select to have a 1-1 conversation or a group one. All communications will go to your email inbox, app push notification or an sms if you haven't seen the communication on ClassTag within 1 minute.

ClassTag Apps

With ClassTag apps you will also have the information at your finger tips. Download an app for iOS or Adnroid to your phone or tablet.
