What's new for parents

Keep track of Firefly's new features and changes.

12 December 2018

It's now easier for you to keep track of your child's workload and make sure they're staying on top of their homework with changes to the way tasks are listed.


See your child's tasks from Firefly for Parents

The Firefly for Parents apps are now more robust to keep you involved in your child's learning journey. Continuous reporting gives you an up-to-date view of all your child's homework tasks straight from the dashboard. Task statuses are visible in the app along with any activity and task updates, and you can see marks, grades and teacher feedback for each task. This update will be available for schools in Australia at the end of January. 


 

Increased visibility in the Parent Portal 

Now, when you log into the Parent Portal, new options and icons make it easier to check your child's tasks:

  • Progress, Due Date, Set By and Class filters help you sort through your child's assignments. 
  • New icons that help you know when they've submitted homework or received a mark or grade.
  • Sorting options let you choose the order in which you see the tasks.
