Whether you're starting from square one or you're looking for a refresher, we've got you covered. This guide highlights some of our most useful Help Centre articles for getting started with ManageBac as a parent.
Parents are able to view select information related to their children depending on how your school is using ManageBac, and what permissions have been enabled. Parents are able to access the Calendar events, view the summary of units being taught as well any task assessments, browse messages, access Attendance records and Report Cards for their children.
1. Signing-in & Accessing ManageBac
To protect your ManageBac data and class records, we recommend to create a Password that is hard to guess and generally easy to remember. Feel free to use any suggested passwords or random passwords generated by your browser, or create your own. A pass phrase of 3 or 4 random words with spaces in between could be considered hard to guess but relatively easy to remember. We do not recommend to save your password to any browser on computers that are not your personal devices.

2. Navigating ManageBac
The left main menu is the same or similar for all parents. The default landing page is your Dashboard. Each parent will see personalised information on the Dashboard based on your children's Year Group (ie IB DP 2), Classes (ie IB DP Biology) and Groups (ie Basketball Club) they may belong to. The centre panel of the Dashboard shows a calendar, upcoming deadlines for your child's classes.
For parents linked to multiple children, select them via the top-left dropdown.
