In the Student Groups Widget, a group can be copied/shared and pushed to another user or user group. The Copy/Share feature allows the group creator to duplicate a Smart or Static group to share with another user.
Once copied/shared, the groups operate as two separate groups without interaction. Either group can be renamed and/or modified by the creator or receiving user without changing the original group.
The receiving user will only have access to those students who are within his/her permission set. For example: A district administrator makes a group with all 4th graders in a district and copies it to each 4th grade teacher. Each individual teacher's group will only show those students in the group who are assigned to him/her in Skyward and not all students in the district administrator's original copied group.
Copy: The recipient(s) will have their own copy of the group that they may edit/delete that does not impact the originator's copy.
Share: The recipients will have a shared group that if edited/deleted will impact the originator's group.
