  • Use Login Message: Check this option to turn on the ability to add a custom message to be seen on the `Login` page of the Student Progress Center for the whole district.
  • Login Message Language: Select the language for the custom login message. You will need to type using the foreign language as this is not a translator.
  • Login Message: Type in the custom message to be seen on the `Login` page of the Student Progress Center for the whole district.
  • Allow students to login: Check this option to allow students to log in to the Student Progress Center. Students do NOT have to Register As New Register like parents and guardians to create usernames/passwords. See Student Login Editor for instructions on how to generate usernames and passwords for students and then they can log in to the Student Progress Center.
  • Use student active directory (only in certain districts): If students have an active directory account, check this option to use their active directory usernames and passwords instead of generating usernames and passwords in JCampus. When checked, you will then be asked to enter the active directory "Domain" name, "Host" name, and DN (Distinguished Name).

  • Staff Profiles to allow:: If you would like to add additional profiles, such as TE or SE, to the list of those that can log in to the Student Progress Center, click in this field and select the desired profiles as well as the profiles listed above. By adding additional profiles, you are deactivating the default profiles, so they have to be added back in also.
  • Login Staff Profiles as S7: If you want a profile to have the same security as a S7, then add the profile here. The S7 profile was created for SPED and/or IEP teachers to be able to view student`s records that are assigned to them.
