View-only Access for Parents

Families are complex, and schools need to accommodate them. Sometimes only one parent should have the ability to sign for their child. Unchecking the "Responsible signer" box only locks them out of contracts.

There needs to be a way to lock them out of signing forms (and any other permissions, such as applications) without stopping them from viewing student progress, schedule, &etc.

This would also be useful for families where other family members (such as grandparents) have been given permission to view student progress, even if they are not the legal guardians.

    This is a very common situation in divorced families. Most divorce decrees give both parents Educational Rights to access their student's information. However often one parent is given exclusive educational decision making rights. I just reviewed a decree like this today. In this case, mom has exclusive decision makes rights but dad has educational access rights. Please add this.

    YES! We have several parents in this situation. They need to see grades, but don't have that is all as they don't have legal decision making rights. I spent hours today trying to figure out how to do this in BB and failed.

    I think this is a really intriguing idea - a relationship that is "observer" or similar. It would be challenging to determine what they should see, though - medical info? day schedule? I guess I'm trying to understand who the person is in a student's life who has access to their schedule/progress/(view)forms/medical and personal info, but who can't sign a permission slip. I recognize the correctness of your comment - families are complex!
