Student Groups in District to honor User School Permissions
Allow Student Groups created in the District to honor user school permissions. This will allow creating a district wide group assigning multiple users to that group without creating multiple groups.
Example, create district wide pre-enrolled group, or district wide analytics group for D/F, district wide Chronically absent analytics group.

Student Groups are currently school-specific. If you manually set a group to apply to school 0, the groups can be viewed at the district level, but cannot be viewed at the school level.
It would be great if we could flag certain groups as being available to schools. That way, we could add students to groups at the district level and users at the school level would be able to run queries/reports based on group membership, without being able to modify group membership. This would likely be accomplished through the addition of a new field in the group definition and the ability to select school 0 in the school scope dropdown menu.
In the meantime, our workaround has been to create a custom table called Temporary Student Groups, import the necessary data there at the district level, and give queries to school staff that pull data from that table.
