For the Parents / Guardians:

For the School Administrators:
By launching Parent Portal a district takes the crucial step of involving parents and guardians in the mission of keeping students safe on school technology, especially after hours and on weekends.
Below we show you what the parent / guardian's journey will look like as they enable their Parent Portal.

After the Invite Goes Out:
STEP 1: Once the Parent Portal is launched, this email will be sent to the parents/guardians to invite them to enroll. If they'd like to enroll, they will click Confirm My Contact Info:
STEP 2: They will be taken to a page to enter an email and create a password for their free Parent Portal account. The student accounts are connected automatically once the parent clicks the Confirm My Info button seen below:
NOTE 2: If a parent with multiple children receives separate activation emails for each child, they do not need to create separate Parent Portal accounts. Once they've created an account with the first student/child, it adds the other children automatically.
STEP 3: They will be prompted to enter their child's birth month and birth year so that the recommended actions and tips presented on the dashboard are tailored to the child's age range.
STEP 4: That's it! Now the parent will be able to access the dashboard for their child's student accounts. They can access this dashboard from any web browser or via the Bark parent app on iOS and Android.
