Adding student accounts in Imagine Reading

In order for your students to use Imagine Reading, they must have a student account. Administrators can add new accounts (or reactivate existing accounts) for any student in their school or district, and Teachers can add new student accounts (or reactivate existing accounts) for any groups assigned to them. You can also add student accounts if you self-roster Literacy accounts through bulk import.

When you add a student account, specify the school (or organization) and group that you want to assign the new student account to when adding a student account. Also specify the student's first and last name, student ID, alternate ID (optional), grade level, username, and password.

To add new student accounts
