Teacher permissions groups are designed to provide schools the ability to give Teachers permissions in order to manage their classes.
About Permissions Groups:
- Permission groups are controlled at the district level.
- The only functionality available at the school level is the assigning of teachers and groups.
- Any school linked to the District later will be allocated the same default permission groups and permissions seeded to them on creation.
- A user may only belong to one permission group for their role per school.
- Admins would be able to create separate permission groups for Teachers
- Admins would be able to add Teachers to different Permission Groups
Assigning Teachers to groups
Teachers must be assigned to groups at the individual schools and not at the district. The district is only responsible for the management of the groups and the related permissions.
A teacher may be invited from either the district or the school portal. When the teacher is created, the teacher will be assigned to the default teacher group. The administrator may move the teacher accordingly.
The default Teacher permission is set as Full Control and is displayed below

In Class Action - Provides permissions for the teacher to action tasks during class
App Management - Provides the teacher the ability to block applications during class
