The calendar tool is available in the Student, Instructor, and *Parent Dashboards.

Note: The Parent Dashboard has access to the student's calendar. From the Parent Dashboard, you can update event details and manage sessions. However, to promote accountability and independence, the ability to add events to the calendar is limited to the student. 

Students, parents, and instructors can book sessions on the "Session Booking" page. 

To add events or block off time on your calendar, follow these steps:

  1. Click on the "Calendar" tab in the left navigation bar on your user Dashboard.
