What are the different permission levels for Curriculum?

This is part of our Curriculum Solution. You will not have this option if you are a free user.

In this article, we will cover the different permission levels that can be assigned to users within the curriculum platform. Assigning permission levels and organizing roles within a school or district can ensure content is not being published before it has been reviewed, or deleted accidentally.

Users can be assigned three different permission levels within Chalk: PublisherCreator, and Viewer.

Curriculum Publisher

  • The Publisher permission has the ability to edit map content, create new maps/drafts and has the ability to publish, archive, and restore archived maps.
  • This role is recommended for administrators or subject area experts involved in the review and publishing process.

Curriculum Creator

  • The Creator permission has the ability to edit map content, create new maps/drafts, but does not have the ability to publish, archive or restore archived maps.
  • This role is recommended for subject area experts and teachers actively involved in the curriculum development process.

Curriculum Viewer

  • The Viewer permission can only view content in published curriculum maps. It does not allow for users to create/edit maps or enter drafts. 
  • This role is recommended for teachers who are not actively involved in the curriculum development process but will access and utilize the curriculum content.

Note: It is important to identify these roles within your organization as it allows for improved organization, easier review processes, and accessibility.
