PATH: System Administration > Portal > Preferences > Display Options

The Display Options allow schools to determine which features appear on the Campus Portal for students and parents. This is a school-wide tab, meaning the high school in a district may have different options selected than a middle school. For that purpose, a parent/guardian who has students in both the high school and middle school may see different options on the Portal.

Display Options apply to both Campus Portal and Mobile Portal. See the Mobile Portal Display Options page for more information.
