Add schools

Depending on the size of your district, there are two ways to add schools to an edclub account: individually or in bulk.

Add schools individually

If only a small number of schools needs to be added to an account, the easiest way is to add them one by one:

  1. Go to Schools.
  2. Click + Add School.
  3. Provide the school's name and optional contact information.
  4. Save your changes by clicking Add School.

Add schools in bulk using the Data Import Tool

To access the tool, go to Tools Data Import Tool. The Data Import Tool is a powerful data processing tool that allows admins to upload large amounts of data in a quick and organized manner. Simply prepare your spreadsheet with a .csv extension containing your schools' information, or download our template by clicking here: Data Import Tool School CSV template file.

Let's take a look at the required and optional fields for a successful upload:

  • Required fields
    • school-id: your internal ID, no special form is required
    • name: name of the school is required

  • Optional fields
    • address: will help you more easily sort through your school list in the future
    • action: use the word "update" for all rows in your spreadsheet to add or update schools, or the word "delete" to remove them
Warning: Field titles must match exactly.

Once you have created your CSV file, make sure to save it, return to the Data Import Tool page, and upload the file. Uploading may take a couple of minutes depending on the size of the file. Check the Schools tab to make sure all schools from your spreadsheet have populated in your account.
