Determining your Classroom access and permissions within Little SIS

Little SIS provides many powerful ways to explore and take action on the Google Classroom classes on your domain, but what you can see and do very much depends on what kind of user you are within Little SIS.

Are you a super administrator on your Google Workspace domain?

Google Workspace domain super admins are automatically assigned a super admin role within Little SIS. A super-admin can control all Little SIS settings, manage school and timeframe tags, create Little SIS users, and control user access and permissions regarding Google Classroom classes. Super administrators can view ALL of the Google Classroom classes on a Google Workspace domain and have unlimited access to features within Little SIS.

Have you been assigned a role with limited access and permissions?

Depending on your assigned access, from the Home page, you may see only a limited set of classes within Little SIS, and depending on your role, you may also have only a limited set of features available to you.

Your scope of access to classes is typically controlled by an administrator assigning your account to one or more School(s). You can view the schools assigned to your account from the Home page by clicking on the school tile. Learn more about how administrators assign school tags, create users and create roles.


The academic year is another critical variable in understanding your scope of access to classes. Be sure to toggle between academic years, as the count of Classes will differ for each. Because your administrator may not have applied school tags to classes for all previous academic years, you may not see all expected classes for your school(s) in prior school years.
Learn more about how administrators set up timeframe tags for the academic year.  


What permissions does your role have?

Within the home page, your role title (e.g., Instructional Supervisor) is listed, along with the permissions assigned to that role and a list of permissions not currently assigned. Each of these permissions is clickable and provides a popup description of what it does.
