Group Membership DifferencesIn contrast to other types of groups, administrative views and printouts of class group details include the names of the students' parents or guardians and display family group contact details instead of personal contact details.
In print or online views, only entries for students published accordingly will appear. Likewise, parent/guardian and family contact information will only appear in such entries if published accordingly.
