To get started as a Public School PRC Coordinator

Principals nominate their school's coordinators using the Access Management Utility (AMU) accessible through the Staff Portal.  Relieving principals may need to contact their ICT Service Desk for access to AMU. 

Please contact your principal to tick approve you on the AMU system as a PRC Coordinator. 

Coordinators will then be able to log in to the PRC website using their DoE username and password.


To get started as a Non-government School PRC Coordinator

Your school principal (or their delegate) is responsible for managing the DoE accounts at your school using the Staff Management Utility (SMU) and Access Management Utility (AMU) applications available in the DoE Extranet.  

The responsibilities include: creating new accounts, re-activating existing accounts, provisioning PRC coordinators and resetting passwords.

Please contact your principal to create a DoE account for you on the SMU system. Once they have set you up on SMU, they will then need to tick approve you on the AMU system as a PRC Coordinator. 

If your principal does not have a DoE account so that they are able to set you up, please have them directly contact us at this email so that we can set up an account for them. After this, they will then be able to take on their duties with managing the DoE accounts at your school.
