  • Elementary and Secondary Student Accounts

    The student accounts are created in the Students\CostCenter\Grade OU.  They will need to stay in this OU structure.  If they are moved they will be moved back nightly.

    When a student is transferring to a new school, the student account will be moved after the student is enrolled and scheduled in the new school.

    Student accounts are enabled at creation and automatically added to the school based mail enabled security groups (costcenter-grade).  We encourage you to use these groups for ClassLink because they are rostered from FOCUS and not manually maintained.

    Student accounts are added to the appropriate PasswordPolicy security group.  You no longer need to manually add the students to these groups.

     

    Elementary Student Account passwords are set the students LunchPin.  If the LunchPin isn’t available at the time of account creation it is set to 12345.  The LunchPin will be the password set for all new student accounts grades PK-5.

     

    If you would like to have all of your currently enrolled student passwords to be bulk reset to the LunchPin, please send a request to the HelpDesk.

     

    Secondary Student Account passwords are set to schoolprefix-LunchPIN (ex. CHS-12345).  If the LunchPin isn’t available at the time of account creation it is set to 12345.  The prefix-LunchPin will be the password (just doesn’t sound right to me as plural, but it’s okay) set for all new student accounts grades 6-12 and they are not set to change on first login.

     

    If you would like to have all of your currently enrolled student passwords to be bulk reset to the prefix-LunchPin, please send a request to the HelpDesk.

  • ClassLink Tile Assignment


    ClassLInk Here is a partial rundown of the what?/where?/who? In regards to the ClassLink tile assignment process.  There are 7 ways tiles can be assigned.  Techs have control over two (2) (Groups and Users) the district has all 7.

     

    Techcons assigned tiles:

    Any tile being assigned to a specific user (1 by 1) or to AD security groups should be done by the techs on site unless it includes one of the tile assignments managed by the district below.  Techs have a special Tile called EdTech that grants them access to add tiles to either OU security groups and specific users as needed.  If you are using a security group IN AD and you do NOT see it in your EdTech tile, please let me know the name of that group so I can verify it is properly imported, synced, and assigned to you to have access control over.

    • Group specific tiles
    • User specific tiles (A3, admin tiles, specific people on site are only authorized user, etc.)
    • Admin portal type tiles (i-ready admin, tiles that require admins log in a portal different from teachers/students, tiles that require special manually created user accts, school-based rostered tiles)
    • school specific tiles (Network Shares, Print managers, Security videos, Software bought/run by the school only)

     

    District-assigned tiles:

    District handles the following tile assignments: (This is not an exhaustive list, but the most frequent ones)

    • OneRoster Data We upload all teacher and student enrollments/schedules with Course and Section info – this is what drives the data behind ClassLink tiles.
    • Profile (District Wide) assignment of tiles (Spam/Virus Firewall & Archiver, FOCUS, Leon LEADS, Liquid Office, O365, Unify, Skyward, Schoolwires, VERSA, Roster Verification, Teacher Portal, Tech User guides, PDFCandy, Noodle Tools,  FSA, Bright Futures, LCVS Digital Acad - Canvas)
    • Org / Cost center specific assignments (i-Ready, LCVS Digital Acad - Canvas)
    • Course # based Enrollment tile assignments (Think Central, Renaissance, ConnectEd, Ed, MyHRW,  AimsWeb, i-Ready (Student), Pasco Physics, Discovery, Santilliana, Teams, Unify, LCVS Digital Acad - Canvas)
    • Class Section tile assignments.

     

    Hope this helps give you some who/what/where clarification as to how tiles are assigned and which ones you do not need to be assigned.  If you did, it’s not a problem, the system doesn’t replicate the tiles, it’s just redundant work

  • What do I need to look at as the Techcon for CBT Testing?


    There is no separate Technology Coordinator Guide or checklist for CBT administration. Instead, technology coordinators should use the following resources (See CBT File library below):

     

    ·         Test Administrator User Guide

    ·         TIDE User Guide

    ·         FSA Infrastructure Trial Guide

    ·         Secure Browser Installation Manual

    ·         FSA Technical Specifications Manual
