How do I choose my Rostering Method with Seesaw for Schools?

Administrators on Seesaw for Schools accounts can set up their school's classes, teacher, and student accounts in bulk! You can create your school's classes by creating a CSV Roster Import for individual schools, or by using Clever, or ClassLink with your district. We recommend that most individual schools and smaller districts use CSV, especially if they need to roster quickly and have never used Clever or ClassLink before. If you choose to roster with Clever or ClassLink, you are required to purchase implementation and work with an Implementation Consultant. Implementation is optional with CSV rostering. To see what is included in implementation, please view this help center article. 

Below are more details about the different options and which might work best for you.

CSV Rostering - Implementation Purchase Optional

If you choose to roster via CSV, then you are not required to purchase implementation. Implementation is optional if you prefer the extra support!

If you are creating your classes via CSV Roster Import, you will use our Roster Template to build a spreadsheet of data, import it to your school, and bulk create your classes. It's much faster than creating accounts one by one. View the step-by-step instructions or watch the recording here.
