Build the family data files by following the format indicated below.
Family (.txt or.csv)
This file identifies all parents or guardians for enrolled students who will use Xello in grades K-12.
Each parent/guardian will be on a separate row.
|FirstName||char(100)||Parent/guardian first name|
|LastName||char(100)||Parent/guardian last name|
|char(100)||Email address for the parent/guardian
Note: Parent/guardian accounts require an active email address. An empty email field or a default filler email address will prevent parent/guardian access.
|StudentId||char(15)||The unique Student ID for the student|
|SourceParentId||char(15)||Unique for the district (not just unique to the school)|
|Phone||char(20)||The parent/guardian phone number|
