EdAlive Central (Schools) - School Administrator Functions

EdAlive Central (Schools) - School Administrator Functions

The Role of a School Administrator

Each School starts with one designated School Administrator. This first School Administrator can assign Administrator status to any number of the Teachers at the School.

The role of an Administrator is to perform bulk management tasks for the School and to ensure the privacy of the Students by limiting each Teacher’s access to the Classes and Students they are responsible for.

To access the School Administrator functionality you must be a designated School Administrator and be signed in to EdAlive Central.

Who are your School Administrators?

If you are not one of the School Administrators you can access the School Administrator menu and the person or persons currently designated as School Administrators will be displayed. You will need to contact any one of them to have School Administration tasks performed.

Multiple School Administrators

The EdAlive Central system includes the flexibility to allow for any number of Teachers to be added to the School’s list of authorised School Administrators.

  • When a teacher registers a new School in EdAlive Central, that teacher will automatically become the first Teacher on the list of School Administrators.
  • All School Administrators have equal privileges.
  • Any Teacher added to the list of School Administrators will be able to perform any and all of the School Administration tasks including adding/removing other Teachers from the list of School Administrators.

Privacy and Security with Multiple Administrators

It is important to remember that all Teachers on the School Administrators list have FULL ACCESS to the entire list of Classes, Teachers and Students at the School – including Student data and other reports.

Typically these additional functions touch on matters of student privacy and the security of Student and Teacher data. It is the responsibility of the school to ensure that care is taken to accord with the school policy with regard to these issues.

Import Students (School Administrator)

To successfully use the Student Import function each student’s EdAlive Central Student Account will require a unique Student ID. If you have already created EdAlive Central Student Accounts without Student IDs the Student IDs will need to be manually entered using the Class screen before proceeding.
