Rostering is the first step in the Otus implementation process. Otus has the ability to sync students, teachers, rosters, and demographic information with the following Student Information Systems.
If you’d rather roster your students and teachers directly in Otus and forgo an integration with your Student Information System, please follow the directions below to prepare a rostering file.
Please click here to download the template that you will complete and share with the Otus team in order to roster teachers and students in Otus.
Sheet 1 ("Example Rostering Template") outlines each field and the acceptable values.
Sheet 2 ("Blank Rostering Template") is a blank template that you can use to format your data.
Fields that are required are highlighted in blue. Optional columns can be left blank. For example, if you are not sharing demographic information with Otus such as Gender or Race/Ethnicity, those columns can simply be left blank.
Once your rostering file is compiled in .csv format, you can securely share it with the Otus team. If you have not received a secure link to share your district's rostering data, please reach out through the Otus in-app chat and our team will happily provide you with one.
The Otus team will handle all bulk uploads of rostering for each school year. Your district will be responsible for maintaining records throughout the school year, including student movement between classes or new enrollments.
