This is an old revision of the document!
let us know if you wanted last years homeroom teachers cleared out of the Homeroom field in the Modify Info Page. Once it's cleared out there are three options for updating it with the upcoming school year homeroom teachers if you wish.
Option 1: Manually enter the homeroom teacher for each student on the Modify Info page. (Probably not the best!)
Option 2: If you have already scheduled students for the 2015-16 school year Lisa and I can use the Home Room class rosters to mass fill it. Just let us know when you're ready. If your school does not use homerooms let us know and we will work with you on getting the appropriate teachers in the homeroom field.
Option 3: If you have not scheduled your students and want the homeroom field updated please follow these instructions to prepare a file for Lisa or me to import. Of course only request this if you have not manually updated the home room field on the Modify Info page with the students homeroom teacher for the upcoming school year.
1. On the start page select All (beside of the grade options) 2. From the group functions menu choose Quick Export 3. In the field window include
student_number lastfirst grade_level home_room
4. Submit and either open or save in Microsoft Excel
5. Sort by grade_level
6. Enter the teacher names in the home_room column for each student (see example below). Note: you can copy/paste to save time. In case you aren't aware of it Excel also has a memory feature that will allow you to type the first letter or two of a word and it will recall a previous entry so all you need to do is hit enter.
7. Once you're finished save the file as an Excel (.xls) file and email it to me or Lisa.
