ClassTag launched a feature that allows parents to easily view the announcements and classwork that the teacher posted on their child’s Google classroom directly on ClassTag. Teachers that synced their Google Classroom with ClassTag can now allow their students’ parents to see their Google Classroom Stream and Classwork through the students’ backpacks on ClassTag. Parents can visit the “Google Classroom Parent Portal” to view these information.

Here's the comparison between ClassTag's Google Classroom Parent Portal and Google Classroom and what is being shared in each section.

Please note that if you do not see “Google Classroom” after clicking your child’s name, it means the teacher has not updated the permission to sync from Google Classroom yet.

How can parents view the Parent Portal?

1. On your child's class on ClassTag, click the "Library" tab.

2. Click “Backpacks”.

3. Click your child’s name.
