The STAR Renaissance Zap includes student, staff, section, roster, demographic, and status data so that districts can easily provision accounts and classes within the Renaissance family of products. The Zap can be configured to extract this information on a scheduled basis, ensuring that your data remains synchronized between the two products.
The file will be exported as "SingleSchoolFileTemplate.csv"
Regular filters available are School, Grade, and Subject
Options available for this specific Zap are "Do Not Include Teachers" and "Include Non-Teacher Staff"
This export will pull every combination of related students, staff and classes into one record whenever it can. The following types of records will be pulled:
- Students Only
- Personnel Only
- Students & Classes
- Teachers (Personnel) & Classes
- Students & Teachers (Personnel) & Classes
If the "Do not Include Teachers" option is off, records with students, their classes, and the classes' teachers will be included with all three information type fields filled in.
If the "Do Not Include Teachers" option is on, records with only students and their classes will be included. The Student and Class fields will be filled in and teachers are left out entirely.
Remaining students who are not enrolled in a classes will then be included with only the Student fields filled in and the Personnel and Class fields left blank
If the "Do not Include Teachers" option is off, remaining classes that do not have students enrolled will then be included as records with the Personnel and Class fields filled in and the Student fields left blank.
If the "Do not Include Teachers" option is off, any other staff with the "Teacher" position but not assigned to a class will be included as records with just the Personnel fields filled in.
If the "Include Non-Teacher Staff" option is on, any other staff considered to have the School Level Administrator or School Staff position will be included as records with just the Personnel fields filled in.
The export is meant to contain only information for one school. The export file does not contain any information about the school itself.
- Multiple Zaps must be created for each school to export and then setting the School filter to one school for each of the Zaps.
- Including multiple schools in the export will cause Renaissance to import the records into a single building on their end.
