Assigning a SESIS role

SESIS roles are based on an individual's role in Galaxy. For most school staff, role assignment happens automatically based on job title or assignment. Principals can make changes to these automatic role assignments when necessary by using the SESIS role function in Galaxy. This function can also be used to assign individuals to SESIS-specific roles that are not related to their job title, such as IEP teacher or principal's secretary.

Principals and other SESIS role assigners use the SESIS role function in Galaxy to grant and revoke access to SESIS. Each user can have multiple SESIS roles. Privileges are granted based on the least restrictive role.

To assign a SESIS role

  1. In Galaxy, locate the user's name in the Table of Organization.

  2. Right-click the people () icon next to the user's name.

    Note: If the individual's name does not appear in the list, add the user to the Table of Organization.

  3. From the pop-up menu, click Assign Role, then click SESIS.

    The Role Access Assignment page appears.

  4. Check the box next to each SESIS role you wish to assign to the individual.

    Note: Most individuals already have one or more roles checked based on their job title. You may choose multiple roles, as applicable, for each individual.

  5. Click the Save button.

    A confirmation page appears.

  6. Review the roles you selected and click the Confirm button.

    Note: If you need to make a correction, click the Back button make the necessary revisions.

    A final confirmation pop-up appears.

  7. Click the OK button.

    It may take up to 48 hours for the change to be reflected in SESIS.
