Rostering options

The Renaissance Growth Platform offers several options for rostering. Each offers various advantages depending on your school and district needs.

  1. Import Roster Data
    There are three types of imports to choose from when importing roster data into the Renaissance Growth Platform. Follow these instructions on how to import a file. Please review the file requirements below for the different options:

Please note that staff emails are now required to be included in the single file imports.

  1. Automated rostering with Custom Data Integration
    Renaissance offers a paid rostering solution called Custom Data Integration. If you have purchased this, a Data Specialist will reach out to you shortly with information on next steps.
  2. Manual Rostering
    You can manually add new students or personnel after your initial rostering is complete. This is a great option as minor enrollment changes happen throughout the school year. You can edit or add student users, school-level staff users or district-level users.
  3. Shared Rostering
    Once you have rostered onto the Renaissance Growth Platform, you can take advantage of Shared Rostering. This new feature allows you to share your roster data regularly and automatically with other Renaissance products 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.
