How do I add a School Tech Lead ?
To make a user a School Tech Lead:
- First, the user should be added as a school admin on the Team Page of the Clever Dashboard. Directions can be found here.
- In the Team Page, under filters, select "Admin Type" and then choose "School". This will show you a list of all of your school admins in Clever. If you don't see any school admins in the table below, you'll first need to upload them (step #1).
- Select the pencil icon to edit a user to assign them the School Tech Lead role - this will allow them to log into the dashboard.
- The School Tech Lead can now log into the dashboard to view usage metrics, manage Clever badges and modify sharing rules (if enabled by the district administrator)
How do I add School Tech Leads using the optional 'Role' field in the admins.csv file?
In the instructions above, we showed you how to add School Tech Leads using the Team page on the Clever Dashboard. It is also possible to upload School Admins as School Tech Leads by adding an optional field to the admins.csv file called "Role".
"Role" is an optional field that only accepts the values School Tech Lead or STL (case-insensitive):
Changes that you make on the Team page will overwrite the settings for School Tech Leads who have been uploaded in the admins.csv.
For example, let's say that you upload Sally May as a School Tech Lead using the "Role" field in the admins.csv . If you then go to the Team page and change Sally May's role to Portal Access Only, Portal Access Only will become Sally May's new role moving forward.
