Import Template

Please click "Download Sample File" to download the import template for student information. The import template is very particular with the formatting and text. Please do not change the columns or the headers, even if you will not be using "Mother Email", it must remain on the import template. If you are copying/pasting data from another document, please make sure that the cells do not have any additional formatting.

  • Please check for “erroneous” characters within the cells. Check cells to make sure there are no equal signs “=” or quotations “” signs in the cells. We have found that some systems place these items in cells after copy and pasting.
  • Check student names for “extra” characters. For example, if a student name contains an [‘] apostrophe, these characters must be removed to upload your data successful.
  • TIP: Use the “Find and Replace” function within your template editor to remove these characters “in mass” when formatting your template.
