Manage TCR Content Access District-Wide

On the TCR Content Access Management page of the System Management section, District Content Administrators are able to manage the entire district's access to Texas Curriculum Resources (TCR) by specific subject areas and grade levels/courses. If the district has a subscription to both TEKS RS and TCR, access to the TEKS RS and TCR materials will be mutually exclusive. However, users with the District Content Admin role will always have access to both sets of materials (regardless of the access settings).

Note that the District/Campus Content Access settings operate independently from the User-Level Access feature. The intention is for one or the other to be utilized, not both.

REQUIRED ROLE: District Content Admin

SITE ACCESS: System Management > TCR Content Access

VIDEO TUTORIAL: Manage TCR Content Access (District-Wide)

 

Click on the System Management drop-down in the site’s main navigation menu and select the TCR Content Access option.

On the TCR Content Access Management page, the first table (District-Wide TCR Content Access) contains toggle switches allowing District Content Admins to turn certain TCR materials ON or OFF for the entire district (acts as a master switch). The default setting is OFF for all TCR components throughout the site.

When users attempt to access TCR materials that are turned off, they will receive the following message:

To turn TCR on for any subject area and grade level/course throughout the district, simply check the associated box.

Performing this action will allow users throughout the district to access all TCR components (IFDs, YAGs, etc.) pertaining to that particular subject area and grade level/course.

If the district has a subscription to both TEKS RS and TCR, access to the TEKS RS and TCR materials will be mutually exclusive. Checking a box on the TCR Content Access page will turn off the equivalent box on the TEKS RS Content Access Management page, thus restricting district user access to the TEKS RS content for that particular subject area and grade level/course.

TEKS RS (off/restricted for district):

Alternatively, uncheck the Select All Grade Levels/Courses box to turn all subject areas and grade levels/courses back off again.

If you belong to a district that has access to both TEKS RS and TCR and you would like to turn TEKS RS materials back on for the district, navigate to the TEKS RS Content Access page and check all the applicable boxes.
