Frequently Asked Questions
Are there username and password requirements for educators?
Yes! Usernames must be unique to the login code domain. The username cannot contain any spaces. When manually creating or updating an educator account, usernames can be entered with any of the keyboard special characters and most of the Alt-Code characters if those alt-code characters are copied/pasted. Passwords must have a minimum of eight, maximum of 32 characters of which at least one must be special character, uppercase, lowercase, and numeral. No spaces are accepted. All the keyboard special characters are allowed. Period (.) cannot be the only special character.
What does it mean that usernames are unique to a login code domain?
When logging in, users will have a login code specific to their site. A username must be unique to that login code. It does not matter whether the user is an educator or student.
Will the permission to add students and teachers be removed if a school moves to a bulk load/nightly import?
In MyPath K-5, when bulk upload/nightly import (also known as Scheduled SIS Imports) is enabled for the school, students cannot be manually added by educators. Teachers can be manually added at this time, but with the understanding that if a manually added teacher is included in the bulk upload/nightly import file, that teacher's record is overwritten with the changes in the nightly file.
