District Manager Rights

District Managers and those with District Manager rights in their Forefront account can prepare and set up a roster file sync or perform a manual roster upload. Reach out to support if you need District Manager rights and have not been assigned them already.

One-Time Upload

Schools and districts may prepare a data file for a one-time upload at the beginning of each new school year. The District Manager then manages ongoing changes through the year by adding individual user records (e.g. new and substitute teacher accounts). Teachers can then add new students to their classes once they have been added to Forefront.

Who is this for? Single schools or small districts. This is the only configuration type possible for Lite plan subscribers.

To get started, make sure that the person preparing these data files and performing the upload has a District Manager account in Forefront. This person will prepare your data file as outlined here Roster File Contents and then upload the file as outlined in the Manual Roster Uploads article.

SFTP Process

Districts may run a script exporting data from your Student Information System (SIS) to prepare data files for a daily import into Forefront.

Who is this for? Districts with multiple elementary schools or schools with a dedicated tech manager.

To get started, make sure that the person preparing these data files and performing the upload has a District Manager account in Forefront. This person will prepare your data file as outlined here Roster File Contents and then connect it to our app through SFTP as detailed in the article Rostering Sync Setup and Connect to the SFTP Server.
