    • What is Edmodo?
    • 1. Parents should create a Parent account, not a student or teacher account.2. In order to create an account, parents will need their unique parent code. This is not the same asa group code, which is what students use to create an account. (See the below FAQ forinformation on where to retrieve the parent code)3. Parents only need one parent code, regardless of whether their student has multiple teachers usingEdmodo. Once their parent account is created, they will be able to see all of their student’s classes from thataccount.4. Parents only need one account at all times. Parents can add multiple students to one account, or removestudents if necessary.5. Parents of younger children who are asked to create a student account for their child only need to create oneaccount. The child/student will use the same account for all their classes and throughout all their years in school.The same rule applies for parent accounts- one account is used year after year, until your student/childgraduates.Frequently Asked Questions:How do I get a parent code and create my account?Parent codes can be retrieved from one of two places:● Your student/child: On the homepage of your student’s Edmodo account, the parent code is located on the rightpanel.● Your student’s teacher: The teacher can retrieve parent codes from their “members” page and distribute them toparents.Do I need a parent code for each class my student is in?No. Once you create your parent account, you will be able to see assignments, grades, etc. for all your student’sclasses.5 Tips to Help Parents Get Started
