Add Another Parent to a Student

There may be times when you need to create multiple parent accounts for a particular student. Usually the second account is another parent who requires a separate account (due to separation, divorce, or other circumstances).

You can add a second parent to a student through the User List page. Only a super user will be able to add another parent to a student’s account.
