This article is relevant to School District Admin users who manage multiple schools in SchoolInsight.
When managing multiple schools, some entities, such as courses, can be created at either the school or district level. When courses are created at the school level, they are only available to the school at which they are created. On the other hand, when courses are created at the district level, courses can be made available to one or many schools. This article will discuss how to control if courses will be created and maintained at the school or district level. Additionally, the article explains how to make courses available to schools when they are created at the district level.
Control whether courses can be created at the school level
A School District Admin can control whether courses are school-managed or district-managed. When courses are district-managed, they can only be created and edited from School District Admin Main. When courses are school-managed, they can be created at either the school or district level. District-created courses can only be edited by School District Admin.
To set permissions:
- Go to School District Admin Main > Options > School Permissions
- Use the radio buttons to decide whether Courses are school-managed or district-managed
Set district course availability
When creating a district course, you have the option to determine whether the course is available to the entire district, to certain school types, or to specific schools. This decision cannot be changed after the course has been created.
The course availability determines which entities (grading scales, report card item lists) can be linked to the course. For example, a course available to the entire district can only use a grading scale that is available to the entire district.
