Family Zone Classroom

Overview

Family Zone Classroom lets you manage your students' online access. You can send your entire class to a specific website, allow and restrict access to certain sites, message your students, and lock students’ screens. You also have the ability to see students’ screens, open tabs, and internet activity.

In order to utilize Family Zone, you must have set up a class in Google Classroom with your students. Family Zone will then display each of the classes you have in Google Classroom and allow you to view and manage your students' online access.

Logging In

In the dropdown box to select a school, choose rowlandschools.org then click the sign in with Google button.
