Staff Type

Members of staff may be grouped and assigned to several categories. Generally speaking a category does not add any privilege to the user.

The basic categories are :

  • Academic
  • Administrative
  • Ancillary
  • Other

By default each member on the system should be placed in one of these categories. This allows searching and sorting. You may use the tags ACA ADMIN and ANC in the staff search box to filter for one of these.


Further more users may also be tagged in the following categories

  • financial
  • bursar
  • viceprincipal
  • principal
  • chairman
  • part time

The PRINCIPAL type may be used to retrieve the name and email of the principal and to confer privileges on the user.

These categories do not add any other privilege and cannot be used to control system access.
