The Dashboard is the homepage that you see when you first log into your account. From here you can see your child's Academic records and any upcoming events or deadlines from the classes and year group that your child is in.
Parents can view Class Messages via Dashboard > scrolling down to the the Classes section > click on the Messages tile for each class. PYP Parents can be notified via email of new Messages if enabled by the teacher. This functionality does not exist for DP and MYP parents.
You can also view the Year Group Messages and Class Messages via the Messages tab on the left hand side of your profile > selecting the relevant Year Group / Class.
Viewing Message Notifications
Click on the Mail icon to view any new messages from the classes that your child is enrolled in.
Please note that message notifications older than 3 months are removed from ManageBac automatically. The messages remain accessible within the Year Groups or Classes in which they were created.
Parents Association Messages
If your school has enabled the Parents Association, you will see this section in the left navigation panel. Please note that your school may have renamed this tab.
Once you click on this section, you will find a two-week calendar of upcoming events and deadlines and a list of recent announcements and messages.
To see messages in greater detail, go to the Messages tab.
You can post a new message by clicking Post Message in the sidebar. To view a message in full click the title of the message. Parents can be notified via email if enabled by the sender.
Please Note: This is a public message to all teachers and parents in the year group. The school may also lock the Parents Association and not allow parents to post messages or respond to Messages with comments.
