Sharing Access to Your Child’s Information
You can invite other adults—like relatives or a tutor—to see information about your child in NYCSA. However,
as some of this information is kept private by schools, we ask you to consider carefully whom you will invite. You
control how much or how little information you want to share with them.
After signing in to your account, go to the Manage User Access page. Here you will see the adults you can share
your child’s information with. You will need to provide your child’s Student ID number to the person you want
to share the account with. Without that number, they will be unable to complete the account-joining process.
What Information Will I Have Access To?
Additional user. These roles determine how much of your child’s information they can see.
• As a Custodial user, you can see all information available in your child’s NYC Schools Account. Also, you
can invite other adults to view your child's information. In addition, custodial users can update their own
cell phone numbers in the application to be contacted directly about emergencies.
• As a Non-custodial user, you can see most information in your child’s NYC Schools Account. Noncustodial users can also update their cell phone numbers in the application in cases of emergencies.
• As an Additional user, you can see information the child’s custodial parent shares with you.

The amount of information you see for the child depends upon the level of access the child’s custodial parent
has granted to you. For any questions about the content or your access to a child’s NYC Schools Account, we
encourage you to speak with the child’s custodial parent.

What is a parent/guardian google classroom summary?
As a guardian, you can get email summaries about your student’s activity in Classroom. Email summaries do not include grades. For grades, ask your student or contact the teacher.
In email summaries, you can review:
- Missing work—Work not turned in when the summary was sent.
- Upcoming work—Work that’s due today and tomorrow (for daily emails) or that’s due in the upcoming week (for weekly emails).
- Class activities—Announcements, assignments, and questions recently posted by teachers.
If there’s no activity to report or if a teacher turns off email notifications, you might not get an email summary.
How do I set up my parent/guardian google classroom summary?
You can get email summaries sent to any email address. However, to view or update email summary settings, you need a Google Account. With a Google Account, you can change the frequency of your emails, update your time zone, see the students connected to your account, and unsubscribe from email summaries. For details, go to Create a Google Account.
If you unsubscribe from email summaries, you’re still connected to a student as long as you have a Google Account. Otherwise, unsubscribing removes you as a guardian.
To start receiving a google classroom summary please email Ms. Krista kpolli[email protected] with your child's name and class and she will set you up.
Get email summaries
To get email summaries of your student’s work, you must accept an email invitation from a teacher or administrator. You have 120 days to accept an invitation before it expires. You can unsubscribe from summaries or remove yourself as a guardian at any time.
- Ms. Krista ([email protected]) emails you an invitation to join your student’s class.
- In your email program, open your email invitation.
- Click Accept.
If you’re not the guardian, click I’m Not The Guardian.
- Click Accept to confirm.
When you accept an invitation, you and your student get an email confirmation.
