 This video shows a quick overview of what you can expect from Clever Parents! 


Clever aims to support student learning everywhere. With Clever Parents (previously ‘Clever Family Portal’), parents/guardians can create an account and help their kids learn at home. This article will cover setting up a family account, the tools available in Clever Parents, and answers to frequently asked questions. If you run into any issues regarding these accounts, please feel free to reach out to our support team.

If you’ve already set up your Clever Parents account and need to log in again, you can go to!

An overview of Clever Parents is available here: 


Setting up your Clever Parents account

If your child's school or teacher has invited you to Clever Parents, you as a parent will go through the following steps:

1. Accept your invitation

Invitations are sent by your child's school or teacher! The invitation may be in the form of an email or a text message (see below.) If you have multiple children in the same school district, you may receive multiple invitations—one for each child. You must click the link to each unique invitation to be connected to all of your children using Clever.

If you have not received an invitation but would like to use Clever Parents reach out to your student's teacher requesting they invite you as outlined here.

To create your account, click on the invitation link and proceed to step 2!

2. Confirm your invite.

Once you click on the link you will be taken to a Clever Parents web page. If the name of the school and your child are correct, click the blue button! If you have multiple student invitations, you will be presented with the confirmation screen for the next student. Once all students are confirmed, proceed to step 3!

If the name that appears is not the name of your child, your school may have associated you with the incorrect student. Please reach out to your school or child's teacher to resolve.

3. Create an account

IMPORTANT:  Please use your personal email address when setting up your account, NOT your child's email address.

If you’d like to use your Google email account to log in to Clever, select Continue with Google. The Google account does not need to match the email address where you received the district invitation.

If you do not have a Google email address, select Continue with email. You will be prompted to set a password for your account. This password can be changed at any time.

If you have already set up your account and connected with another child, you will be prompted to log in again and connect to your additional child.

After confirming your email, you will be automatically signed in. Welcome!




Clever is excited to offer messaging between teachers and families as part of the Clever Parent experience. This feature allows you to communicate securely with your child's teachers from one convenient location. 

Clever messaging

Messages will only be visible in your Clever Parents once a message has been sent to you from a teacher. Once a message has arrived, you will see a Messages tab in Clever Parents where you can communicate with your student's teacher.

If a message is unread after three (3) hours, Clever will send a notification email with a link to the unread message. Notifications for unread messages can be disabled by clicking your name in the top-right corner of Clever Parents and selecting Account Settings (

Please note, you will only be able to send a message to a teacher that has already sent you a message. If one of your student's teachers does not appear, please reach out to them directly via email letting them know you would like to communicate via the Clever Parents 


Using Clever Parents to help your child log in

If your child cannot log in to Clever, you can help them log in using your account in Clever Parents. You can use Clever Parents to provide your child access to their school's Clever Portal in two ways:
