Introducing ManageBac to Students and Parents


The following webinar includes a presentation from experienced Middle Years Coordinator Hope Forgey from the International School of Denver on their timeline introducing ManageBac to students and parents, as well as tips and tricks to keep the school community up to date on the system each year.

FAQs and Further Resources

1) When can you send welcome emails to your student and parent community?

You can send welcome emails as soon as the students and parents are imported, or wait until after you have introduced ManageBac to them (for example, via a back-to-school assembly, screencast or class orientation). Welcome email password links expire after 24 hours.

To learn more about re-sending welcome emails, please click here.

2) Has giving parents the ability to see your syllabus changed the way you write units? What can they see?

Parents can see the "front page" of the units, including the titles, dates, and important general information (such as MYP Key Concepts). Hope mentioned that giving parents more visibility has helped teachers be more thorough.

3) Can students and parents see all units all the time or just the unit that you are currently doing in class?

Teachers can choose which units are hidden from student and parent view, by ticking the 'Draft' box when creating the unit. To learn more about drafting units, click here.

4) How can schools send weekly news to parents?

The Parents Association includes a message board. Messages can be emailed to parents either in bulk, or sent to parents by year group.
