Since Parents (aka Observers) are not technically enrolled in courses or organizations they can not receive the same types of notifications of the student to which they are linked.
As a K12 customer MANY of our parents would like to receive email notification when an assignment has been made/due/overdue, an assessment is due/overdue, or other similar notifications that can be received by a student. With parent engagement being highly correlated to student success we want to support our parents to be engaged but the notification abilities for parents/observers is limited. Enabling the parent/observer role to receive more of these notifications would also help adults within the school system who are authorized and assigned to support specific students (e.g. paraprofessionals assigned to special needs students or English Language Learner).
