In order for your parents to request to enroll or enroll students into classes from the Parent Portal, the Classes check box must be selected in your Parent Portal Settings. The Enroll Students or Request Class Only option must also be selected for the Enrollment Options (Tools > Parent Portal > Settings > Class Enrollment Settings). See the Help article Set Up the Parent Portal for more information.
From the Parent Portal Dashboard, parents can request to enroll or enroll their students into classes using the Classes & Events option in the top menu to access the Find Classes page. The sidebar menu can also be used.
When opened, the page is automatically filtered for the age ranges of the students in the family's record. The filter can be removed to show all classes regardless of the age settings by toggling the Show me classes for... button to All Ages.
The class listings can be further filtered and sorted to narrow down the results.
- Alphabetically by class
- By class ages
- By class start date
- By time of day
- Alphabetically by location
- Alphabetically by instructor
- By price (tuition)
Filter options (may be affected by your Portal settings, see Set Up the Parent Portal)
- Start Date
- Time of day
- Days of the week
When the parent selects a class from the list shown, they are taken to the Class Details page where information about the class is displayed.
- If your database is set to allow enrollment, they will click the Enroll in This Class button.
- If your database is set to allow requests only, they will click the Request This Class button.
This opens the Enroll or Request page where the parent will select the student(s) from the list of eligible students by selecting the check box next to their name.
Parents may be required to select or enter a schedule if you have set your Parent Portal to require a schedule. They can optionally add information they feel is relevant in the Additional Info > Comments section.
To select the class the parent will click Enroll or Request.
A confirmation of the enrollment or request will display in a pop up.
At this point, the parent is taken back to the list of classes where they can continue to select classes to add. A confirmation email is sent to the parent and your organization. This email is sent to the Reply to and Send Alert to Email Address designated in the Portal settings (Tools>Parent Portal>Settings).
The Portal enrollment is viewable from the Family's Misc tab>View Registrations button. It is also logged in Reports>All Reports>Parent Portal log.
