Set up the Parent dashboard and define permissions for the Parent Portal, then invite parents to start using it.
The Firefly Parent Portal is an add-on that allows schools to share information on Firefly with the parent community of their school. The school can choose exactly which pages they would like parents to have access to, what information about their child they can see as well as send messages and forms.
When parents login to Firefly, we recommend they are directed to a different dashboard to that of other users, so the information on the dashboard is relevant to them.
Configure attendance, behaviour and change contact details, or manage reports for the Parent Portal.
Use profile permissions to decide what profile information each category of user on Firefly can view.
After you've configured the Parent Portal, it's essential to trial it to make sure everything is set up and working the way it is intended before introducing it to parents.
For those schools launching their Parent Portal, we have pulled together some ideas that can be used to give parents the information they require.
