Understanding PVAAS Accounts

Account Management Hierarchy

All users who access PVAAS must have their own user accounts. Several account types exist, and they each offer a different level of access to the reporting.

Accounts exist at the state, LEA/district, and school levels. At each level, a single account is designated the admin. The person who holds this account manages accounts for others directly below them.

School users

For each state, LEA/district, and school, only one admin account can be created. However, an unlimited number of user accounts can be created. When creating and managing accounts, admins have many options for defining which reports and features each user should be able to access. For more information on creating and modifying user accounts, see Managing Accounts.

Each state, LEA/district, and school admin can choose to share account management privileges with one or more other users. Users with account management privileges can create, modify, and deactivate users' accounts the same way the admin can.
