To assign a Family Playlist to your students, please follow the instructions below. For information on linking parent accounts to student accounts, see our article on how to Manage Students' Family Partners


Family Playlists can be assigned to your students directly from the Playlist Library or from the My Playlists section. Information on both are below. 


Assigning from the Playlist Library:


1. Once you've found a playlist you would like to assign to your students, click the Assign button.


2. Assign the playlist to your entire class by selecting the box next to your class name. You can assign the playlist to individual students within a class by clicking the arrow next to the class name and then selecting specific students. Click the Next button to schedule the assignment and notifications.



3. Select dates and times for the following fields and click the Assign button. 

  • Assign to Students: The date when the assignment becomes visible to students on their student account.
  • Due By: Due date for playlist to be completed. Please note that the assignment is still accessible by the student and family partner after the due date has passed.
  • Notify Family Partners: The date/time Family partners will be sent a text and/or email with a link to access this playlist from their mobile device or computer. Messages will be sent in the home language designated on the family partner's account.
  • Remind Family Partners: A reminder notification that includes a link to the mobile Family Playlist will only be sent to families that have not yet completed the Family Playlist.



Assigning from the My Playlists Section:


1. Go to your My Playlist section and find the Family Playlist you would like to assign.   


2. Once you have found the Family Playlist, select the arrow to open the action menu and click the Assign button to open the Create New Assignment menu. 

 
3. Assign the playlist to your entire class by selecting the box next to your class name. You can assign the playlist to individual students within a class by clicking the arrow next to the class name and then selecting specific students. Click the Next button to schedule the assignment and notifications.

4.  Select dates and times for the following fields:

  • Assign to Students: The date when the assignment becomes visible to students on their student account.
  • Due By: Due date for playlist to be completed. Please note that the assignment is still accessible by the student and family partner after the due date has passed.
  • Notify Family Partners: The date/time Family partners will be sent a text and/or email with a link to access this playlist from their mobile device or computer. Messages will be sent in the home language designated on the family partner's account.

5. Once you have assigned your Family Playlist, you will be given the option to print the Family Exploration and Family Feedback sections for students who do not have internet access at home (and no family partner with a data plan on their phone).
 
6. Select the student(s) you would like to print a letter for, choose a language, and click the Print button.



7. The printed letter contains the Family Exploration and Family Feedback sections of the family playlist. Students and their family members can complete the family exploration directly on the sheet, and return it. Family members can then send their Family Feedback response via text message by following the instructions on the form. Their responses to questions will be automatically added to your family playlist report. However, families submitting feedback via text message will not be able to send additional comments.
