SLP: Locate Guardian Information

Introduction:

A student’s account is set up in the Student Learning Portal with at least one guardian assigned for contact purposes. An educator or mentor can view the guardian’s information by performing the steps outlined below.

Details:

  1. First, select the Students tab in the top menu bar.
  2. Next, tap the linked name within the “Student” column to view student information.
    The Active Student page is displaying a table containing a list of active students within their affiliation. An arrow points to the linked name in the Student column.
  3. Then click Guardian Accounts from the left menu.
  4. As a result, the Guardian List will display all associated guardians and contact information for this student.
    The Guardian Accounts page displays the Guardian list in a table format. The columns include, first name, last name, email, phone and username. There is one row displayed with example data that is associated with the example student. Below the table there is an “Add New Guardian” section which includes email, password, first name, last name, Role, and phone number fields. A create button is shown just below.

Limited Course Capacity

We’re sorry to inform you that we have reached capacity for several of our Semester 1 and Trimester 1 courses. You’ll notice when attempting to enroll students in our Student Learning Portal that some courses are unavailable. While we are no longer accepting new enrollments for these courses at this time, many courses continue to remain open for enrollment.

With many students across the state 100% remote, demand for our online courses is greater than ever before. Because every course we offer is taught by a Michigan-certified teacher, this high volume of enrollments has created capacity issues for our teachers who provide each and every student with individual feedback.

While the Michigan Virtual team anticipated and planned for significant increases in student enrollments this Fall, the increased demand we’ve experienced has been unprecedented. As a result, we are taking steps to hire even more part-and full-time teachers to support larger numbers of student enrollments for Semester 2 as well as for Trimester 2 and 3. 

For schools that still need online learning options this year, please fill out the form at the bottom of our virtual pathways page to meet with someone to discuss other solutions. While some of our teacher-led courses are full, we may still have the capacity to help you in upcoming terms or can discuss timing to implement a whole-school or collaborative program in which local teachers from your school/district use our online course content to teach students. We also have free course content and resources available for you to use.

We know this is an incredibly stressful time for all, and we’re sorry if the courses you’re looking for are unavailable. We never want to turn away a student who wants to learn from us. Our top concern, however, is student success, and we have a policy to not take on additional enrollments if we cannot guarantee that all students will have a quality online learning experience. 

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate the unusually high volume of enrollments we are receiving.
