How to create a new district or school support user
If you are a Portal administrator for your team or organization you can create users and manage access levels for the staff who work on your team from the User Management section of the Portal.
Navigate to the Network Portal.
From the School Picker, select View Network
From within a School Portal, click on the school switcher in the Left-side Navigation (beneath the Portal logo), select View Network
Navigate to the User Management page by clicking on Settings in the Left-side Navigation. Then select User Permissions.
Select Add User from the Right-side Toolbar
Define the user's name, email(s), title, and access level. To learn more about the permissions associated with each access level see this article.
If you selected the Network and School access level, you are granting the staff member the ability to enter individual school Portals in addition to seeing school data in aggregate in the Network Portal. The next step will be to define the portfolio of schools that the user should have access to within the universe of schools you work with. Click Next to define the user's portfolio.
Note: DOE Superintendent accounts are automatically created and managed by New Visions based on DOE source data. All other DOE accounts are created and managed manually by designated Portal administrators via the steps above.

Click the Three Dot Menu next to the user's row
