There are two methods for updating Student Attributes: manual updates through the Directory or bulk updates using a CSV file. In this article, we will explore these two approaches in detail.

❗Important notes❗

  • CSV upload with student attributes can only work for students who have Student IDs from your SIS.

  • Student Attributes must exist in your school or district before you can update them for students. ELL, IEP, 504 plan and FRL exist by default. To create other attributes for your students, please contact
