Allowing contacts with parent-level access to maintain, add, or edit information on their student's profiles can be a great way to keep information up to date. Some schools prefer to know when records are changing and would prefer to keep this privilege available to school staff only. School administrators can now turn this privilege on and off as desired for your school from your School Settings!

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Can school admins customize this setting for some parents?

This permission toggle is at the school level - either ALL parents can edit Student Profiles or none.

Do new schools need to choose this setting during the Getting Started process?

The default for new Schools is that this setting is toggled “OFF” - meaning parents do not have the ability to edit Student Profile by default for a new school. Current brightwheel schools will retain their current permissions - parents will be able to edit Student Profile until Admin goes in and turns the toggle to “OFF” for this permission.
