Staff are individuals who use the Literacy portal to manage students, start sessions, and administer Imagine Reading. They can be administrators, teachers, interventionists, coordinators, or other student advocates. Each user needs an individual staff account in order to access the Literacy portal and interact with Imagine Reading. Depending on the role assigned to your staff account, you can perform different tasks in the Literacy portal.
If you are an Administrator, you can add new staff accounts individually or by importing roster data.
To add a new staff account
- On the Dashboard, click Manage Staff under the Manage heading.
- Click Add.
- Enter this information for the new staff account:
Field Description First Name Enter the staff member's first name. Last Name Enter the staff member's last name. Account Type Choose the account type for this staff account. The account type determines which staff account permissions a user has in the Literacy portal. Choose one of these account types:
