When using the Import Students feature, it is important to enter the data in a specific format. Depending on which products you have, you will see some or all of the following columns. Leaving the field blank on an existing student will make no changes to the settings.
Grade Level: This optional field will be determined by the teacher's selected grade, unless the teacher has selected "Multiple" or "Other."
