Parent App Guide

eBackpack for Parents can be used on the web browser at parents.ebackpack.com or by downloading the app from the App Store. The parent site will allow you to view a reflection of assignment/assessment activity in your child's account including assignments as they are distributed, turned in, graded, along with many other features.
 
HOME SCREEN
 
1. On the home screen you will see notifications for assignment/assessment activity for the current week.
  • Red = Late assignment/assessments that are past due (remember, some teachers do not ask the students to make a submission into eBackpack - this would show as late even if they physically turned something into the teacher).
  • Yellow = Upcoming assignments (due today or tomorrow).
  • Blue = Graded assignments/assessments that you have not yet viewed in the parent account.
2. If the student does not have any of the above notifications in their account for the current week you will see a status of "All Good".
 
3. If you need to add another child to your account you can click this button and you will need that child's parent code.
 
 
INDIVIDUAL CHILD SCREEN
If you have more than one child synched to your account you will have a separate section for each child. Clicking on the child tile as seen above will open that child's account.
 
4. Any assignment/assessment that shows up as red on the calendar means that a submission has not been made to that assignment/assessment before the due date has passed.
 
5. Any assignment/assessment in blue is due soon with no submission.
 
6. An assignment/assessment that has been completed will show with a check and will be grayed out.
 
7. The class list on the right side of the screen will be represented by a color that is referencing the assignment/assessments on the calendar.
  • Yellow = assignment/assessment due soon.
  • Red = Late assignment/assessment.
  • Green = No outstanding notification for that class.
8. All Graded work that you have not seen as a parent in the app will appear here. You can toggle between the "read" and "unread" graded submissions. Clicking the icon will open the submission to allow you to view more information.
 
9. Clicking My Files Activity will show you the files your child has saved in their "private personal storage space" of their account. Most students save their ongoing, incomplete work here to access later.
