Move Students to Another School

When students move from a lower school to an upper school to continue their education, their information needs to be transferred from one school to the next. This is a two-step process: The first part involves performing an Administrator's Plus export of the highest grade level in the lower school. The second part involves importing the desired grade into the upper school.

Export from the Highest Grade Level in the Lower School

Do this while logged in to the current school year (the school year that has just been completed).

Before you begin, you must create a backup of the directory into which you will be importing students.

  1. In Data Base, click New Files.
  2. Click the highest grade level from the Grade drop-down list.

  4. Click Export to Administrator's Plus file, and click Next.

    Export File

  5. Browse your computer for the file path of where you want to send the Administrator's Plus export file.

    By default, this reads C:\ADMIN.ASC.

  6. Click Done.

Import into the Lowest Grade Level of the Upper School

For the second part of this process, perform an Administrator's Plus import into the lowest grade level of the upper school.

Do this while logged in to the new school year.

  1. In Data Base, click New Files.
  2. Click the lowest grade level from the Grade drop-down list.
  3. Click Other [F9].
  4. Click Import to Administrator's Plus file, and click Next.
