Managing Users in a District

District administrators can perform many tasks, such as view rosters and create school administrator accounts. Click on a tab to find out more information on how to complete a task.

Viewing and printing user rosters

As a district administrator, you can access and edit student, teacher, and school administrator account information in schools within your assigned district. To view a list of existing users in your district, complete the following steps.

Finding District Users

  • After selecting a district, click the Users tab. 
  • The Find a User page displays the User Names (up to 50 per page in alphabetical order) of all the student, teacher, and school administrator users in your district along with their Full Name, School, and Role (or type). The total number of users is displayed at the bottom of the page. 
  • Click the filter drop down menu at the top of the page to view only users who are school administrators, teachers, or students. You can click the Include Inactive Users check box to also display the Inactive users.
  • To navigate through the pages of users, you can click the View Next link at the bottom of the page. Search for a specific user by typing all or part of a user's name or username in the Search field and click the magnifying glass icon. All users matching the search criteria and role will be displayed.  
  • Click the button to the left of the user name and click Edit to view account information for a specific user.  
  • Click Print to print a copy of your entire roster. The roster is displayed in a new browser window with the Name (listed alphabetically by last name), user name, and password (students only). 
  • When the print dialog box appears, select your local or network printer and click OK.

Adding a New Student to the School

  • From the Find a User page, click the Add button and select Add new student
  • Select the appropriate school and enter the student's first and last name, their student ID number, and their date of birth.
  • Check the Generate User Name and Password box under the Account Settings to auto-populate the user name field with the student ID number and the password field with the date of birth (recommended).
  • If you would like to use a different user name and password, uncheck the Generate User Name and Password box, and manually enter a user name and password, then confirm the entered password.
    NOTE: User names must be unique to the WPP Online system.
  • Click Save. The student account has now been added to the selected school. The teacher will still need to add the student to the course in order for the student to start using WPP Online.

Inactivating a Student Account

  • To inactivate a student account, find and select the student, and click the Edit button.
