Rostering options

Single-School CSV file Upload

NEW Email requirement for 2021-2022. Staff emails are now required to be included in your single file import. You can export this information from your student information system (SIS).

Single-school imports are often done prior to the start of school by the customer’s lead technical contact or school administrator.

A new school year needs to be created before your roster can be uploaded.

A step-by-step guide will assist in importing students using a single file per school, and here are the tips for setting up the file. If you need help preparing or importing your file, please contact Customer Support via live chat or call 1-800-338-4204.

Automated Rostering with CDI

As a CDI customer, you do not need to create a new school year or upload rosters. If you have questions, please contact your Data Integration Specialist.

Shared Rostering Opportunity

After completing your rostering into RGP, customers can take advantage of Shared Rostering, a new feature allowing them to regularly and automatically share RGP rostering data with other Renaissance platforms including Freckle, myON, and Schoolzilla.

If you are interested in learning more about Shared Rostering, please contact [email protected] to set up a time to discuss.
