Creating a District Administrator

Use this page to see the steps to create a District Administrator account and assign user permissions.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What are the three required fields for creating a district administrator's account?

The only required information is the user’s first name, last name, and password. Everything else is optional. The username will be generated automatically using the first three letters of the first name and the first five letters of the last name. We encourage the use of an email address so the user can recover their own password if they forget it in the future.

 Permission

To follow the steps listed below, you will need to have "Add Educators" checked under Educator Accounts. To validate your permissions, click here.

If you have this permission enabled, you can only create an account equivalent or below your current access. So, if you are a school administrator with this permission, you can create school administrator and educator accounts.

  1. Under the Administration tab, select Manage Educators.
