How do I give access to Administrator Reports?

All enrolled staff will have Standard access to their classes and students. Your district IT has set up a specific login method for your district. Please contact your district if you are unsure which login method your district uses. Please see Amplify Login options.

How do I set a staff member’s password?

Staff members can set their own Amplify passwords. Click here for more details on Amplify Login.
