Users and User Permissions
For security reasons we at FrontEdge Inc. will not grant any users other than Administrators access to SchoolFront. Administrators are then responsible for adding and managing the access of all users in the system including school staff, students, parents/guardians, etc.
User access to parts of the system and system reports may be changed by adding and removing user roles to individual users and user accounts may be disabled if necessary.
Feature Configuration and Workflow Definition
SchoolFront was designed with flexibility in mind. We know that schools differ and therefore work differently so the system and the features within are configurable, and in some cases may be turned-on or -off.
Administrators define how the system is configured for the entire school or district.
School & District-Level Reporting
Reports like Report Cards, Transcripts, and State Reports require access to personal and academic data from all students and faculty and sometimes require access to longitudinal data (including multi-year) so the ability to run reports at this level is restricted to Administrators.

Some processes, like the management of Discipline or Attendance in a school/district, are distributed and require the coordination of activities across multiple school staff members. SchoolFront allows for the centralized administration of such processes.
Administrators overseeing Attendance, for example, can see see who has and has not submitted attendance, can trigger notifications in the event that attendance has not been submitted in a timely manner, can override the attendance statuses submitted if they have more information about a student absence, and do much more to ensure that this distributed process runs smoothly and that the inputs of each staff member are aggregated and acted upon appropriately.
