District Staff Capabilities

Capabilities apply only to products that are listed on the Other Math & Reading Apps page (Accelerated Math, Accelerated Math 2.0, English in a Flash, and MathFacts in a Flash). Other products use user permissions instead. For those products, see the User Permissions Table.

The table below lists the capabilities that district staff have by default for products that appear on the Other Math & Reading Apps page in the software. Capabilities that do not apply to any of those products have been omitted here, but you may see them when you set capabilities.
