The Schools Database can be used to edit your district's contact information including school name, address, phone number, fax number, contact email address and grade levels for each location. The database will automatically contain the contact information your district provides when you purchase a 4Schools application. The person(s) given permission to the Schools Database has the ability to add buildings and enter the appropriate data or to edit an existing building and modify the data.
During website development, the Schools Database contact information will be set to display on your website footer for your school district and each school.

Note: The Schools Database link in the Utility Navigation bar will only be visible if the user logged in has been given permissions to the user database.
