Classes can be created either manually, by any staff user or by being imported by a District Admin User. This document explains how to import classes into Classworks. In order to complete this import, you will need a data file with the student, teacher, and class information. This information can be exported from your school’s Student Information System (SIS).
Note: Prior to being able to import classes, you must have already imported your staff and students. Click here for more information.

- Prior to import, you will need to extract the required data from your Student Information System (SIS). It must be saved in a .csv file format.
- Column headers are required. The first cell in each column must contain the column's name as the heading.
- The information must be placed in the exact column specified (see below). For example, column C must be the Teacher District User ID.
- In order to ensure that all classes are imported into the correct school group, make sure you check each school's School Information System (SIS) ID/Code. You can do this by clicking on the Administration Tab and the Schools sub-tab. Each SIS ID must be entered into Classworks exactly as it is listed on the file.
A - Student District User ID - Alphanumeric, 20 characters max.
B - Class Name - Alphanumeric, 60 characters max.
C - Teacher District User ID - Alphanumeric, 20 characters max.
D - School SIS ID - Alphanumeric, 12 characters max.
- A. Student District User ID – This is a unique identifier for each student. This column allows a maximum of 20 alphanumeric characters and is a required field. This should match the district ID currently in the Classworks Manager for each student.
- B. Class Name – The name of the class must be unique for each class. This column allows a maximum of 60 alphanumeric characters and is a required field. If a class name cannot be exported from the SIS, one can be created by using the teacher’s name, grade level and subject.
- C. Teacher District User ID – This is a unique identifier for each staff member. This column allows a maximum of 20 alphanumeric characters and is a required field. This should match the district ID currently in the Classworks Manager for each teacher.
- D. School SIS ID – A unique identifier assigned to the school, alphanumeric, 12 characters maximum, and is a required field. This ID needs to match what is in the Classworks manager and can be found on the Administration tab > Schools sub-tab.
