Through a simple setup process, Little SIS makes it easy for the administrator to assign tags to Google Classroom classes by academic year and campus or school. Once classes have tags, the tags are used to grant access to Little SIS users. You can grant access only to the classes users need to do their job supporting instruction.

For example, you could grant a school principal who oversees teaching and learning at Beach Grove Elementary Little SIS access to all active and historic Google Classroom classes taught by teachers at that school.

Besides seeing Classroom activity for those classes, you can grant users the ability to:

  • Join the class as a co-teacher or student while doing evaluations.
  • Add a substitute teacher as a co-teacher while the primary teacher is out.
  • Transfer Classroom ownership to another teacher if the primary teacher leaves the district.

Which Persona Are You?

Little SIS provides many powerful ways for end-users to explore and take action on Google Classroom classes on a Google Workspace domain, but what you can see and do depends very much on what kind of user you are within Little SIS. Check out our guide to the personas that can enjoy new superpowers in Google Classroom.
