Administrators, please note:

The only roles we support are faculty, instructor, staff, student, learner, prospective student and alumni.

If your user role designates you as an administrator, you will not be able to launch the Scholastic module and will receive an error message. Try impersonating one of your teachers and then you should be able to launch Scholastic from your LMS.
