Notifying teachers, parents & students after rostering

For administrators at organizations with a School Plan or District Plan.

As part of the Remind rollout, district administrators can choose to create user accounts and roster classes for their organization using one of Remind’s SIS Sync methods. After accounts are created, both district and school administrators can help their community get connected on Remind by sending them a first notification (email and/or text message) from the SIS Sync report with directions to log in to their rostered account.

  • The first Remind notification is an auto-generated message from Remind that cannot be edited. 
  • After the first Remind notification has been sent, teachers, students or parents who are added to your school or district via SIS Sync will be auto-notified of their new account.
  • Prior to sending the first notification, we recommend that administrators turn off replies to their messages if they prefer not to receive replies from community members.
  • We recommend sending the teacher notification prior to the parent and student notification to allow teachers time to familiarize themselves with Remind.

Teacher Notification

When you send the first teacher notification, teachers will receive an email to the email address used to create their Remind account with instructions to login and claim their classes. If teachers already have a Remind account, they will have the option to merge their accounts.

Once teachers claim their rostered classes, they will become active for the rest of your community. You can read more about the teacher account setup process here.

Parent Notification

When you send the first notification to SIS-synced parents, they will receive an email to the email address used to create their Remind account or a text message to the mobile number used to create their Remind account. If parents have both a mobile number and an email address on their account, they will receive both an email and a text message.

Student Notification

When you send the first notification to students, they will receive an email to the email address used to create their Remind account or a text message to the mobile number used to create their Remind account. If students have both a mobile number and an email address on their account, they will receive both an email and a text message. 

Please note: Clever does not store student mobile numbers and therefore, students created from Clever rostering will only receive the first notification via email. Students can add their mobile number to their rostered account using these instructions.
