Creating an educator account

Use this page to learn how to create an account for an educator. A user — District Admin, School Admin, or Teacher — must have an account to get into the system. When an account is created, the educator will be given a username specific to their login code, which is a code assigned to a district or school. Usernames must be unique to the login code domain. When manually creating or updating an educator account, usernames can be entered with any of the keyboard special characters and most of the Alt-Code characters if those alt-code characters are copied/pasted. Passwords must be 8-32 characters, with at least one each being a special character, uppercase, lowercase, and a number. No spaces are accepted. All the keyboard special characters are allowed. Period (.) cannot be the only special character.

When bulk upload/nightly import (also known as Scheduled SIS Imports) is enabled for the school, students cannot be manually added by educators. Teachers can be manually added at this time, but with the understanding that if a manually added teacher is included in the bulk upload/nightly import file, that teacher's record is overwritten with the changes in the nightly file.

 Note

A District Administrator can create District Administrator, School Administrator, and Teacher accounts.
