Parent Update Feature Released for Google Classroom
With the latest Classroom release, parents can now receive automatic email updates about student assignments within Google Classroom. When parents/guardians join Classroom, they receive regular email summaries for each of their students. Guardians choose the frequency of the emails—daily or weekly—and can unsubscribe at any time.
Guardian summaries include:
- Missing work—Work that’s late at the time the email was sent
- Upcoming work—Work that’s due today and tomorrow (for daily emails) or work that’s due in the upcoming week (for weekly emails)
- Class activity—Announcements, assignments, and questions recently posted by teachers
By default, guardian summaries for your classes are turned off. Guardians can’t access Classroom or view your class stream.
