Getting started with a new software provider can at times be a challenge. Our goal with Enriching Students is to make the process as easy as possible for all stake holders. If you're reading this document, most likely you have been assigned to import data from your SIS into Enriching Students to get the account set up. This document is going to specifically discuss the initial upload process using CSV files. This assumes that your school has a brand new account that is ready to accept your school data. This document also could apply to a school that may be beginning the new school year and just want to completely refresh their account. In that case, data currently in the account would be flushed and new data would be imported for a complete fresh start.
Note: If you're currently using Enriching Students and you need to update data during the current school year , please follow this link to:
What are the steps to import CSV files into Enriching Students?
Create your data files. Instructions on how to create the files can be found on our website at www.enrichingstudents.com/onboarding
Creation of the school account. When a new account is created we send out a notification email to the primary account contact and the IT contact. This email provides a link that looks like this (https://import.enrichingstudents.com/index.html?importKey=YOUR_SCHOOL_IMPORTKEY). This link will take you to the Enriching Students Import Tool. This tool will not only allow you to configure portions of the account, it will provide a screen where you can upload your CSV files with your Staffers, Students and Rosters.
During the CSV import process we run some data validation processes to make sure that we have clean data to ensure the best user experience possible. In some cases you may find that data you're exporting contains issues that need to be fixed before the process can be completed. To make it easy we provided an error reporting feature that will help you pinpoint exactly where the error is in the file.
Once the files have been successfully processed and uploaded, you will be directed through the remainder of the onboarding pages where you can finalize setting up your account. The last step allows you to send a mass welcome email to all admin, staff and students. If you use Google for your email service there is no need to send the welcome email. The admin, staffers and students can login directly to Enriching Students using their district issued Gmail address.
