Clearing Locks for Students

A student account becomes locked when a student enters an incorrect password too many times in a row. Students with locked accounts cannot log in again until the lock has been cleared or until midnight. The district administrator sets the number of attempts allowed using the Set Login Attempts Allowed preference.

District personnel can unlock any student record. School administrators and staff can unlock records for students in their own school. Teachers can unlock records for their own students.

Who can do this with default capabilities?
