Add a Student to a Parent or School Advisor

There may be times when you need to link a student to a parent’s Edline account or to a school advisor, such as a change in legal guardianship, or a coach needing to view the team member’s academic schedules. By linking a student to another Edline account, the parent or advisor will have the same viewing privileges as the student.
