If you are new school, and need a mass import then please have a look at our Import tool, and follow the guidelines. There are numerous ways to add new students, either by bulk import, admissions, or manually. This article covers how to add a single new student.
How to access
For MySchool 1.8, adding students is via the quick links menu in the top right hand corner of the screen. Find Student in the list and the create student page appears.
A blank student profile will appear, the default mandatory fields for creating a new student are Last name, First name, Gender, and Class in year. Your school may have different requirements. These fields are designated by a red asterix. These are all found in the Particulars tab of their profile page. Read more about the student profile page here.
Once a student has been created and saved they will be attributed a User ID. If you wish to add family members or create households, then first have a look at how to do this here. Have a look at this article in relation to user group access to understand how MySchool manages roles and user groups.
A student is classed as such once they are attached to a class or course. This can be in the active scholastic year, or in the new registration for the next year.
If you use online registration in MySchool, then students will be enrolled from your admissions workflow process. Our admission articles explain how to set this up, and how the system records their profile. If you are adding new students for a class level, from a feeder school or from an offline process, then MySchool Import tool makes this easier for Administrators to map legacy data to MySchool data fields.
