The August 2021 update (6.5) for Scholantis SharePoint on-prem will be released on Thursday, August 19th. During the upgrade, your sites will be unavailable for a few minutes at 5:00 pm local time. A maintenance notice will be displayed to logged-in users at noon PST.

Class Content in Parent Portal

Parents can now view class content from within the parent portal. Teachers can now leave class site permissions as private and parents will still be able to view relevant content posted to the class.

Only some class content is visible from the parent portal at this time.

Parents will be able to view the rich text content from the home page and most recent items from:

  • Announcements
  • Special Announcements
  • Calendar

Any other content such as handout documents, media gallery, or assignments can only be viewed from the class site directly.
