How Can School Leaders Manage the Directory?

Web, iOS, Android

From the Web

Verified School Leaders and mentors can add, edit and remove students as well as remove teachers from their School Directory.

Students get added to your School Directory 1 of 2 ways:

1) By a Mentor or School Leader manually adding student names or uploading a school roster.

2) By getting automatically added when a verified Teacher adds new student names to their class.

 

To Add New Students to your Directory:

  1. At the top of the dashboard on the left side of your screen, select your school’s name, then select the “Directory” tab
  2. Select the “Students” tab and then click the blue “+ Add students” button
  3. From here you can choose to enter each student’s name and parent email address (optional) or you can upload a rooster from Microsoft Word or Excel.
  4. Select “Done adding students” when you are finished.

*Note: School leaders and Mentors can include parent emails when they enter new students into the Directory. Upon adding a parent's email to a student's profile, the parent will receive an email that they have been invited to join the school community. When a teacher imports the student from the Directory to their class, the parent will automatically connect to the class.

How to add students already in a class to your Directory:

If you see students in a class but do not see them in your Directory, the owner of the class can push all the students into the Directory. If only a few are missing, the owner of the class will still want to push all students since only the students missing will get added.

1. First make sure you are the owner/admin of the class and that your account is verified

2. In your Class Settings, go to "Connect Students". Click on the button in the banner at the bottom of the window that says "Add students to Directory".

To Edit or Remove Students:

You can edit a student’s name, graduation status or parent connections from the School Directory. You can also remove a student from the school. Here’s how:

  1. At the top of the dashboard on the left side of your screen, select your school’s name, then select the “Directory” tab
  2. Select the “Students” tab
  3. Use the "Search by name" line to enter the name of the student you'd like to edit. Then click on the matching student from the list generated below
  4. Click on the student's name to bring up a pop-up box. From here, you can edit the student's first and last name, add or remove parent connections, or remove the student from the school. *Removing a student from the Directory does not remove them from the classes they are in. 

Please note: Editing a student's name or removing a student's parent connection will change the student's information in all classes they are in, so please use this feature with caution.  

To Merge Student Listings:

If you have the same student listed twice in your School Directory you can merge the two listings if you are a verified School Leader or Mentor. Please note that students can only be merged if there has never been a parent connection for both student listings or one of the student listings. Also, if a student account has been created by both student listings, then the two listings of the same student cannot be merged.

  1. At the top of the dashboard on the left side of your screen, select your school’s name, then select the “Directory” tab
  2. Select the “Students” tab and then the blue “Merge” button
  3. Search the name of the student and once you find both names, click “Merge”

Please Note: Merging two students cannot be undone so please use this feature with caution.

To Graduate Students:

You can graduate a full class of students or select certain students from a class to graduate if they are moving on from your school. Graduating a class archives the class and graduates every student in the class. Graduating a student causes their parent connections to no longer see the School Story, however, old Class Story and Student Portfolio posts will remain in the Parent’s story feed.

Here’s how:

  1. At the top of the dashboard on the left side of your screen, select your school’s name, then select the “Directory” tab
  2. Select the “Students” tab and then the blue “Graduate” button
  3. This will bring up a list of all classes in the school. Select the bubble beside each class with students you would like to graduate and click “Next”.
  4. The next window will show all students in each class. The bubble beside each student’s name will be selected but if you do not wish to graduate a certain student, just unmark the bubble by clicking on it. When you are ready, select “Graduate [Number] students”.

These students will be listed in your directory under “Graduated students”. If you need to undo the graduation status, you can at any time by clicking on the student's name and clicking "Undo graduation".

To Add Teachers:

Verified School Leaders and Mentors can invite other staff to join their school through an email invite. Click on "Invite teacher or staff" if inviting one or "Add list of teachers" if inviting many at a time.
