What can a School Portal Admin do?
When the Coach provides lead user training for the school, the coach will then assign the School Portal Administrator to the appropriate person in the school. (After this has been performed, each school will have at least 2 people who can perform the School Portal Administrator role – the first is the Coach, the second is the nominated School Portal Admin) DEECD assigns School Portal Administrator rights to each Ultranet coach for the schools they look after. (If you are the coach for 3 schools, you will be the School Portal Administrator for your 3 schools.) Overall Process for assigning the School Portal Administrators
