* Actions marked with a single asterisk can be performed in the staff member module by a Teacher only if they are the student's lead teacher. For example, if Ms. Brown is assigned a Teacher role, she can use the Staff Member Module to place only students for whom she is the lead teacher. 

** Staff members can transfer students to another school only if they are affiliated with "All schools." Staff members affiliated with a particular school cannot transfer students.
