Who is this PR for?

K8 teaching teams

What problem does this PR fix?

When creating class lists, there are parallel authorization rules that allow the teacher creating the list to view data for all students at a particular grade and school (if they are authorized to teach students in that grade). Student photos are still requested through /students/:id/photo however, which use standard authorization rules. This means that if a homeroom teacher started the class list process on behalf of the team, only their homeroom students will have pictures.

What does this PR do?

Changes the UI code to use /classlists/:workspace_id/students/:student_id/photo for pictures, and use the class list authorization rules for guarding access. This allows the photos to be viewed more permissively only in this part of the product, and only when this feature is enabled (eg, at particular times of the year).


Which features or pages does this PR touch?

  • Class list
  • Core, student photos

Does this PR use tests to help verify we can deploy these changes quickly and confidently?

  • Included specs for changes
  • Improved specs for existing code in need of better test coverage
  • Manual testing made more sense here
