Allowing staff to maintain student information can be a great way to keep information up to date.  But some schools prefer to keep these privileges for specific staff members and administrators only. See the chart below to learn more about access and privileges based on staff user type.


School administrators can turn these privileges on and off as desired for each staff member right from the web or mobile app!

  2. Click on the name of the desired staff member or click Options > View/Edit
  3. Click Edit in the Permissions section
  4. Check the Edit Student Information box
  5. Save your changes

Enable Edit Access from the Mobile App
