How do I add or remove coaches on a child account?


Parent accounts have the option of enabling or disabling additional coaches to view their children’s Khan Academy progress information.  Child accounts default to allow other coaches to be added in case your child's teacher, tutor, or another friend or family member is going to help coach them on Khan Academy.  If you create an account for your child, you will have the option to disable this option upon creation.


To add a coach

  • Log in to your parent account and click your name at the top right. Choose Settings from the menu.
  • On your Settings page, scroll down to Child accounts and click the Settings button next to your child's username:

  • On your child's Settings, scroll down to Coaches and click Visit the Coaches tab on your child's profile.


  • Add the coach to the child account by entering the class code or the teacher's email address.



To enable or disable the add-other-coaches setting

Follow steps 1 and 2 above.

  • On your child's Settings page, scroll down to "Coaches" and turn on the "Can add coaches" option:


  • Log out of your parent account (from the menu under your name in the upper right, choose "Log out").
  • Let your child log in and follow the instructions to Add a coach.


To remove a coach from your child's account

  • Follow the steps 1, 2 and 3 under "To retain control...".
  • Click "Remove" to the right of the coach you want to remove.
  • If you have allowed the child to add other coaches, you may have to disallow it by removing the ticking of the box "Allow your child to add other coaches" to prevent the child adding the coach back.


Note: You cannot delete yourself as the coach of your own child, as a parent is always a coach.
