One big decision for every customer is whether to turn on Class Privacy to control what classes (and children) teachers can access.  

By default it is turned off, meaning by default all teachers can see and contribute to activity for all children, e.g., create stories, comment on stories, share with parents.  

Site Administrators can turn Class Privacy on to increase child privacy or for management reasons. Once turned on educators will only see their assigned classes and their profile children.  

Note, class privacy settings control teacher access in all Educa features, e.g., if class privacy is turned on, teachers will only see plans and forms related to their children.

Ways to Expand Access For Some Teachers

If you have class privacy turned on, but would like some teachers to see more children, you have several options:

  • Set a teacher as a Site Administrator by editing their profile.
  • Add profile children to a teacher's profile.
  • Add a teacher to multiple classes.

Activating the Class Privacy Setting

Site Administrators can turn on class privacy through your Site Settings under the Privacy and Preferences tab. Simply check the box and the changes will automatically save.
