Administrator Guide

As a District Administrator, Campus Administrator, or Principal, you may often be asked to respond to the technical needs of your staff within the TEKS Resource System. This may include solving basic user account issues, using some of the online tools provided, as well as making decisions that affect the content your staff can access within the system.

Assisting with some of these technical needs requires specific roles be assigned to your user account. For instance...

  • to manage user accounts you must have the District or Campus User Admin role
  • to manage users' access to content you must have the District or Campus Content Admin role
  • to add or edit custom content you must have the District or Campus Content Creator role
  • to review teacher plans and planbooks you must have the Principal role
  • to generate a walkthrough form for classroom observation of members of your staff you must have the Principal role

 

ATTENTION: Administrators and Principals

These roles are established by the District Administrator and can be easily added to your user account if they are not already assigned.

Read through the User Roles and Permissions section to learn more about the permissions granted for different users of the system. Consult your District Administrator to be sure you have the appropriate roles set up on your user account.
