What Is the Role of the Specialist in myON?

Specialists are staff members who may work with students in more than one school and often do not have classes directly associated with them. Specialists could be reading specialists or librarians. Any user who needs access to myON can be added as a specialist, even if the user does not have classes or is not included in the data provided from the school information system. Use the Specialist role when you have educators that are not included in a data feed or file.

Specialists in myON can assign students to their class or create groups that include students from any school in the school group.

Only the Group Administrator can create Specialist accounts for staff who work in multiple schools.
