Why are some macOS student devices appearing as Online, but I can't see their screens?
When the LanSchool Air student agent is installed on macOS devices, there are additional security and privacy approvals that are required. If you're installing LanSchool Air
manually using the installer, the approvals window should appear automatically. If not, open Finder > Applications
and launch LanSchool Air. Select Continue
when the Security and Approvals dialog appears. Unlock and select LanSchool Air for each approval required. If you deployed LanSchool Air using an MDM, see Configuring Privacy Approvals with MDM
Why can't I log in?
Why does the LanSchool Air agent on a student's device show a yellow or red status icon?

On student Chromebooks, LanSchool Air lets instructors see the content of a student's Active Tab.

Student will need to select which display they wish to share before the Allow button becomes active. For more information, see Selecting Student View Modes (Active Tab View vs. Desktop View)
