Survival Tip #5

Managing Student Accounts

managing student accounts
Managing Student Accounts
  • Student accounts can be managed by school staff through the website:

http://www.dysart.org/studentaccounts

  • When this website is accessed from a computer on your campus, all the student accounts for that campus will be displayed
  • This is the Student List page, as denoted by the blue dot beside the words “Student List”
managing student accounts cont d
Managing Student Accounts (Cont’d)
  • The information in the table can be reorganized by clicking the title of any of the columns to sort by that column
  • The information in the columns is as follows:
    • UserID
      • This is the student’s network account username and is comprised of the first initial of their first name, the first seven letters of their last name, and the last four digits of their student ID number
    • First Name
      • Student’s first name according to the SASIxp database
    • Last Name
      • Student’s last name according to the SASIxp database
    • Student ID
      • This is the Student ID assigned to the student by the student information system
      • When the account is first created, this number is also the student’s password
      • For elementary school students this number will always be their password, but high school students will be prompted to change their password the first time they log on in order to keep their account more secure
managing student accounts cont d28
Managing Student Accounts (Cont’d)
  • The information in the columns is as follows:
    • Enabled

      • There is a 24 hour turn-around for data entered into the SASIxp database to be replicated on the “studentaccounts” webpage
    • Grade
      • Student’s current grade level according to the SASIxp database
    • Advisor
      • High School – Blank
      • K-8 – Homeroom teacher

managing student accounts cont d30
Managing Student Accounts (Cont’d)
  • If a given student’s network account information cannot be located on the school’s “studentaccounts” website, consider the following:
    • If the student recently transferred from another DUSD school, it is possible that his network account information has not yet been transferred. Contact the DUSD IT Department Help Desk
managing student accounts cont d31
Managing Student Accounts (Cont’d)
  • If a given student’s network account information cannot be located on the school’s “studentaccounts” website, consider the following:
    • If the student recently transferred from a school outside of the Dysart Unified School District, allow at least 24 hours for SASIxp data to be replicated to the “studentaccounts” website
    • If it has been more than 24 hours since the student transferred into the school, and the student’s network account information has yet to appear on the “studentaccounts” website, contact the DUSD IT Department Help Desk
