This includes but isn’t limited to, exporting the student and staff lists, changing grades and/or schools for the students, removing graduated students or students who are no longer in the school, adding new students to the csv and then re-importing the file back into SwiftK12.

  14. Note: You will need to import the student file and the staff file separately. 

*The files will come in .csv format, already formatted to match your field mapping for your account so it can easily be re-imported back into SwiftK12 after changes are made.

**IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not modify, remove, or add any column header in the csv.  This will negate the files ability to be re-imported because it will no longer match the field mapping setup on your account.
