Clearing Locks for Students

A student account becomes locked when a student enters an incorrect password too many times in a row. Students with locked accounts cannot log in again until the lock has been cleared or until the following day (locks clear at midnight). The school network administrator sets the number of attempts allowed using the Login Attempts Allowed setting.

School network personnel can unlock any student record. School administrators and school staff can unlock records for students in their own school. Teachers can unlock records for students in their classes.

Who can do this with default capabilities?
