If you have only one student in RCPS schools you can now observe your student's grades, a class list, assignments, announcements, a "to-do" list.

If you have more than one student you need to observe ,you will need to visit the "Parent Dashboard" to switch between students.

In the tools menu on the left side of the screen, look for the "Parent Dashboard" link. 

Click on the "Parent Dashboard" link. Once in the Parent Dashboard menu you should see all of your students listed. The student you are currently observing is indicated by the words "Observing" next to their name.

 To switch students, simply hover over the last name of the student you want to observe. A small gray chevron will appear. Click on the gray chevron. When you click on the chevron a small menu appears with the option "Observe".

 Click on "Observe". You can now look at student and course information for your other student.


The best resource for a parent on how to learn how use Blackboard is their very own Hidden Valley student. Sit down with your son or daughter and ask them to show you how to navigate blackboard.

Should you have any questions not covered here, please feel free to contact the HVHS Instructional Technology Resource Teacher Andy Clapper
