Overview

Schools can turn Parent Enrollment within the Parent Portal on or off based on the time of year. When the Parent Enrollment option is not enabled, families will be unable to view the contract, deposit, or other enrollment checklist items for their student(s) within the Parent Portal. However, parents will still see the "Enrolling for 'X' Grade in 'Y' Term" message next to any enrolling students, along with a note that "Enrollment is not yet open for this year".
