What it means: Items marked as Staff Only are not sent to parents. You will see these items when viewing student feeds as a staff member. When parents go to their child's feed, these items will not appear.
Why it's useful: This is great for assessments, observations, and private communication amongst staff members about student learning and behaviors.
Admin Approval: Staff only is also a great way to enable admin approval of posts for those schools that desire this functionality. When teachers mark a post as "staff only," the admin can simply later select that item from the student's feed, select edit, and then remove the Staff Only tag. After removed, it will appear for both staff and parents.
