The best way to add a large group of students to the Symphony Learning roster is through the use of the Import Students or Import Staff buttons in the Symphony Administration Panel. These buttons are available to school or district Administrators in the Students and Staff tabs. The import tools allow the upload of a formatted template that contains information on students, teachers, and class assignments.


Step 1: Download the Import Template

Click here to download the Student Import Template File, a comma-separated (CSV) file that contains the proper fields necessary for importing students.

Click here to download the Staff Import Template File, a comma-separated (CSV) file that contains the proper fields necessary for importing teachers and administrators.


Step 2: Add Import Information

Open the Import Template using a spreadsheet program such as Microsoft Excel. Add the information to the file.

  • The first row of the Import Template file contains field headings. Your finished import template file MUST contain this first line.
  • If you choose to not include optional fields, leave them blank in the template.

Step 3: Send the Import Template

Click 'Browse' above to locate the Import File that you saved in Step 2. When you click 'Browse...', a prompt will ask you to locate the Import File. In most cases, this file will be located on the Desktop, where you downloaded it in Step 1.


Step 4: Confirm the Import

Review the Import Information. If the information is correct, click 'Finish' to complete the import. If the information is not correct, click 'Previous' to return to the previous step.
