Creating a Staff Account

Staff are individuals who use the Imagine Learning portal to manage students, start sessions, and administer Imagine Language & Literacy. They can be administrators, teachers, interventionists, coordinators, or other student advocates. Each user needs an individual staff account in order to access the Imagine Learning portal and interact with Imagine Language & Literacy. Depending on the role assigned to your staff account, you can perform different tasks in the Imagine Learning portal.

If you are an Administrator, you can create new staff accounts. You can create new staff accounts individually with Administrator or Teacher permissions, or you can create multiple staff accounts with Teacher permissions by importing roster data.
