|Setup Security Restrictions|
The screen is where you manage staff accounts and set security restrictions.
The first set of options controls whether or not staff can sign up themselves. This applies to all schools in your district account:
Let anyone sign up themselves — By default anyone can sign up. This is convenient, but students might discover how to create fake teacher accounts, so you should select one of the other options.
Let anyone with email @ example.k12.ca.us sign up — Use this to require a school email address to sign up. It will send a coded link to their school email address, which they must click to prove that they are a staff member. This option is safe assuming students normally do not have access to school email accounts.
No one can sign up unless I first add them — This requires you to add each staff member before they can sign up.
By default, each user sets their own timeout limit when they login. But you may set a maximum limit. For example, if the school sets 15 minutes as the maximum, teachers may choose 5, 10, or 15 minutes, but not higher. This applies to all schools in your account.
You may also prevent substitute teachers from logging in off-campus. This requires your district to have a static IP address. To set your IP address, you must be on campus. Then choose either your current IP address, or all IP addresses assigned to your school.
The checkbox "Let Jupiter staff see student names when you ask for support" makes it easier for us to troubleshoot problems for you. But if your district is uncomfortable with that, uncheck that option. That way our staff see only first name and last initial (e.g., "John S..."), so no students can be personally identified.
Click on a staff member to set their individual permissions. Staff may have different permissions at different schools. The Templates menu helps you select permissions appropriate for clerks, counselors, principals, resource teachers, etc. The table shows these permissions by their initials: T V A S G R D Y:
T. Teacher can give grades — Regular teachers need this.
V. View grades from other teachers — Teachers need this to see grades of their own students in other teachers' classes (they cannot lookup any student, just the students who are already in their gradebooks). They can also see homework, assignments, comments, and report cards. For privacy this is unchecked by default, so you should check it for homeroom teachers and resources teachers. Leave it unchecked for special subjects teachers if you don't want them to see grades in other subjects.
Update student contact info — Uncheck this so only admins can update email addresses, parent contact information, and preferred names.
Update all student info — Uncheck this so only admins can update grade level, gender, birthdate, counselor, parent alerts, etc.
Create student records — Uncheck this so only admins can create new students.
Schedule their own classes and add/drop students — Uncheck this so only admins can schedule classes and students.
