Admins, Managers, and Lead Staff can choose between four contact types when adding student contacts: Parent, Family, Approved Pickup, and Emergency Contact. Each contact type has varying permissions and privileges, as outlined below!
Contacts and Access
These contacts have no access to the child's brightwheel profile and will not be invited/cannot create their own brightwheel account. They also do not have pickup privileges. This is simply a point of contact for the program in the event of an emergency.
💡It's important to note that on our most current Billing experience, Family and Approved Pickups can be added as payers on a student's account. Additionally, while parents have access to billing and payment information by default, in this Billing experience, they can also be removed as a payer.
