Teachers at districts licensing SpacesEDU Pro can access a range of valuable additional features. The specific features available for each teacher will depend on the configuration and options licensed by their school or district. These may include:
Class rostering (pre-creation of classes and student accounts)
Customized proficiency scales
Reporting Spaces (optional add-on for Spaces Pro)
Reporting Spaces additionally include Summary Statements and Areas of Learning
SpacesEDU Pro also offers additional administrator accounts that provide powerful tools to onboard and manage your school or district. These accounts can have access to one or more schools, or an entire district, with either limited or full permissions.
The primary difference between these account types is that only admin accounts with full permissions (a.k.a. 'Super Admin') can use the rostering import function to set up their school.
School admin accounts with full permissions can be created either by the SpacesEDU support team, or by a district admin.
District admin accounts with limited permissions can be created by a district admin with full permissions, or by the SpacesEDU support team.
District admin accounts with full permissions can be created only by the SpacesEDU team for districts with a Pro license.
The table below outlines the features in detail:
District Admin (Full Permissions)
District Admin (Limited Permissions)

Account management: which other users can they add, edit, or remove?
