If the system admin chooses not to upload classes and students with a Combined Import, classes can be added through a Class Import.
If the data file extracted from the Student Information System (SIS) does not contain staff emails, a Class Import can be done to associate classes to the staff member using the staff unique ID. The Staff Unique IDs can be imported with a Staff Import.
Note: This option is not available on free or paid single-teacher accounts. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to upgrade to a school or district license.
