District Process for User accounts:
1School administrator used the Who Am I (aka SIS request tool) to submit a request for a staff.** Look up the details of the decision tree in the SIS Who Am I decision tree document.URL:
2The school admin assistant receives a notification about the request so the staff record can be completed in MyEd BC. Requirements for creating a staff record are: First name, Last name, Staff Type, Employee ID, Calendar ID, and primary email (their SD61 email).Staff records are only entered into MyED BC once. If the staff member had a previous posting in a MyEd BC school, do NOT create a staff record.
3If the staff member has a new role requested or they are getting a MyED BC useraccount for the first time, they will need to access the online training required.All training materials can be found on this web site.
4Once the assessment has been submitted by the staff member and they have successfully understood the training material, the useraccount request will be completed.
5Under School view, Staff top tab, find the staff record. The default field set will show the useraccount log in and generated password.
