The "Sections" tab lists out every section at your school. As a reminder, a "section" is a group of students that take a course (or courses) together. Multiple sections can be mapped to a single course.
You can add, edit, or deactivate sections, and the enrollments within them, in bulk. Click "Upload" to reveal the import/export section. Then, click "Download import template".
The .csv file you download will list all active sections, including both active and inactive enrollments within those sections. The file will include inactive sections as well, if you toggle the "Show Inactive" button first. Don't modify any column headers or the import may not work (including "Schoolrunner Student Attribute Import v1" in cell A1).
Here's an overview of the columns. Note that three fields are marked Option in the "Required" column. This means that Schoolrunner requires one (but not all) of these fields to have data in it.
