What are the different user types in Scoir?

How do I assign roles?

The primary counselor that is registered with a new school account is automatically granted the Account Administrator role. With this role, the primary counselor has permission to add users and assign roles via the Roles button adjacent to each member of the counseling team (sometimes due to screen size you may need to scroll over to the right side to see this).
