For example, you cannot have a hyphen in the staff first name filed, and email addresses must be a valid school email.

Please refer to What are the different types of administrative user accounts? to help define the Access column. For information on importing staff into multiple classes please refer to How do I assign teachers to more than one class during the import process?
