The Learning Management Team is comprised of a student, their parents, teachers, and other people tracking the student's progress. These people can include certificated members of the school or district, and Afterschool Professionals -- people working with the student who, with parental consent, have access to homework information and communications rights.
To join the Learning Management Team of student, you can either add them to a Personal tracker, or click the Join Team button from the Student Record. If you have not yet created any Personal Trackers, you will be asked to create one. Otherwise, you will be asked to assign the student to an existing Tracker list.
You can track as many students a you want in a single Personal tracker. You will automatically become part of the Learning Management Team for all students you track. Your name and Relationship (from the Position field on your account management page) will be listed on the Student Record, and you will be included on LoopMail sent to the team.
To edit the Relationship field for any or all students in your personal tracker:
1. Click Edit Relationship in the Tracker toolbox.
2. Select one or more students in the list.
3. Click Edit.
4. Enter the new relationship.
5. Click the Submit button.
You can also edit the default relationship which will be applied to any new students that are added to the tracker.
Any Staff member who clicks the New Message button in the Learning Management Team section of the Student Record can address the message to any or all of the members of that student's Team. Teachers have access to the same list of team members when addressing a LoopMail message using the list called "Their parents and teachers (individuals)." Parents and students can access the list of Teachers and other members on the Team by clicking the Email all teachers link from their portal homepage.
Learning Management Team members are always in the loop!
Q: I am not seeing the Join Team button in the student record, why?
A: The student is probably in your class, so already on the learning management team as a teacher.
