Quickly Editing Students Names, Usernames, Passwords and IDs

This article explains how to make some quick edits to one or more student accounts from the Classes page. As a District Administrator, School Administrator or Educator (any role equivalent to a Teacher), you can use the quick editing feature to update (or change) and one or more student's first and last name, username, password, and students' ID numbers. Note that username and password changes won't affect student reporting 

Before you begin:

  • Make sure that if you see Managed by SIS, you check with your district's IT Staff, prior to editing student accounts. 

To quickly edit student names, usernames, passwords or IDs

  1. Open the Classes page.

    Based on your role, the steps differ. 

    • District Administrators -- you'll need to locate the school the students are assigned to before locating the class.
      1. From your dashboard (Home page), locate the Quick Links block.
