STUDENT DATA FILE FAQ

What is a Student Data File?


This is a file which is generated by your school administration software, and contains student information such as school name, first name, last name, grade, division, and student#. This data must be uploaded 10 days before photo day.




What is a .csv file?


A .csv file is another name for a Student Data File (see above). It's a plain-text file, readable by all computer types and operating systems.




Who needs to upload the student data?


It is imperative that we receive information from your School Photo Coordinator about your students in order for us to identify them. If we do not receive this information, we will need to reschedule photo day for your school.




When should we do this?


We require your data file at least 7-10 business days prior to your photo day. We appreciate that school administrators are extremely busy, particularly in the first weeks of school, but without this data we will not know the identities of the students and will not be able to photograph your school.




What if not all of the students have registered yet?


If we receive a file with most of the students' data, we can work around it by manually adding the information for missing students on Photo Day. If we receive no information at all, we will have to reschedule your Photo Day.




What is required?


Data for all current students in your school must be provided in Excel or .csv file format and must include the following details for each student: (School, Last name, First name, Grade, Div./Home rm, Student ID #, Library # (only if library card is needed), Prov. Educ. # (only for North Van and Delta). Staff data is required as: (last name, first name, div./homeroom) We cannot accept files in any other format such as PDFs.
