employees. Permissions are only extended to the sites that are assigned to the account permissions unless employees needs additional permissions, are based on job title and lines up with the names of the permissions and our distinguished between site and district
permissions are based on past current and future years per individual permission.
It is also important to note here that permission titles air rolls in your student information system may not align exactly to the district title roles that an individual has so a legend aligning district rolls to your S. I s roles might be needed.
Permissions are typically preset and configured by the system, but permissions may be extended per individual basis based on special needs and her multiple positions being covered by a single account.
These changes must be approved by site administrator and or HR.
Here are some different access levels. You will need to decide what access to give each role within your s. I s, for example, what roles would need access to medical information. Obviously the school nurse, but probably office staff as well, or whoever might sub for your nurse
would building administrators the access to that information.
What about teachers? You can pause the video and read through the permissions to consider the need to know status for each

Some specific examples might be that site administrators and site nurses are the only accounts that can view all medical information
site nurses or the Onley accounts that can maintain medical information, as in add delete or edit medical information in your student information system
accounts that can view medications conditions. Immunizations are the district sped director, site, administrator, site nurse and the site sped. Case manager
site secretaries converge. You conditions and immunizations and counselors can view clinic logs and immunizations.

employees access to their individual payroll. Information is granted through the employee portal Onley Staff requiring access are provided accounts for the financial personnel application. In other words, if you don't need access to the finance system for generating purchase orders, etcetera,
you would only have access for your individual payroll information
after basic information and user idea created, then permissions are given according to position.
The special education system houses student I. E. P, or Individualized Education plan information for students with special needs.
New accounts are imported the beginning of the school year and added and adjusted manually throughout the year by administrators in the technology and or special education departments.
After basic information and user idea created, then permissions are given according to position. For example, Sped district administrator, Sped district coordinator, building coordinator, Sped teacher and principal, probably for viewing access on Lee for their building.
