Preparing for a successful launch
In order to guarantee a smooth experience for back-to-school 2022, you’ll be paired with a Customer Success partner who will provide support with:
- Confirming your data sharing method
- Sharing your enrollment information
- Important enrollment updates
- The next steps in your onboarding process
Introducing the Admin Portal
Amplify has launched a new Admin Portal to streamline your enrollment experience. All staff can access it through my.amplify.com, and district enrollment administrators can use it to batch upload or manually create and manage rosters, add and view Amplify program access, and provide Admin Report access. Your Customer Success partners will work with you to verify successful rostering and to help complete your setup.
Batch upload gives you the convenience of adding or updating your staff, student, and class rosters through a single CSV file* that you upload directly into the Admin Portal. After our secure servers process your rosters, you can also view them in the Admin Portal.
Once activated for your district, batch upload is available year-round. If you’re returning to Amplify and using the Admin Portal to roster this year, your Enrollment and Licensing partner will walk you through migration and setup.
*A second CSV file can be used to upload student demographics for aggregate reporting.
Create and manage roster data
If you prefer to manually roster your staff and students in Amplify programs, you can do so directly through the Admin Portal. You can create new Amplify accounts for your students, teachers, and support or administrative staff. You can also add schools and classes, and roster your staff and students into them.
Add and view Amplify
Administrators can manage program access and view the programs accessible to every teacher and student in the district. Simply select a teacher or student in the Admin Portal to view the full list of their assigned programs. When they need access to additional programs, you can easily add a program and save your updates. If you update your rosters after the digital setup call, Amplify will automatically process and grant access to your programs within 24 hours.
Provide Admin Reports access to staff members
Using the Admin Portal, you can grant Admin Reports access to other staff members in your district. Note that these staff members must be rostered in the school or district organization and have access to the Amplify program for the Admin Reports they want to view.

Additional support resources
- CSV support
Additional CSV support
Please note that the CSV files used in mCLASS Self-Service Enrollment (SSE) and Auto SSE will not be compatible with the Admin Portal for the 2022–23 school year. If you are a returning mCLASS-only customer, you should continue enrolling staff, students, and classes via mCLASS enrollment.
The Admin Portal will support OneRoster CSV enrollment. If you uploaded OneRoster CSVs through the Amplify Enrollment Portal this year, in 2022–23, you will share your files through the Admin Portal using Amplify OneRoster CSV Upload.
Simple and Structured CSV
The use of Simple CSVs and Structured CSVs will be extended for an additional year, but these enrollment files will not be submitted through the Admin Portal. For the 2022–23 school year, you can continue to share these CSV files with Amplify manually via Egnyte. Following the 2022–23 school year, this option will be retired.
- Getting started
Once your district’s account is set up, you can begin using the Admin Portal by visiting my.amplify.com and selecting the Admin Portal tab. You are automatically granted Admin Portal view access for your rosters and programs. To get edit access, which enables you to create and edit accounts for non-rostered staff members, edit programs, and grant access to Admin Reports, please request System Access during your digital setup call or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Data sharing overview
All staff who have a district account registered with Amplify can view enrollment data in the Admin Portal: IT managers, administration, and teachers. With your guidance, Amplify will designate one system access administrator who will have the ability to manage permissions for other staff. Please provide this staff member during your digital setup process. Assigning permissions will be important for staff members to be able to help manage data throughout the school year.
- Demographic changes
For customers enrolling to mCLASS through Clever, ClassLink, or Admin Portal only
If your district is currently sharing demographic information with Amplify for Assessment reporting, please take note of the following changes listed below. These changes were made to ensure that Amplify is implementing best practices when it comes to data sharing, laid out by Common Education Data Standards.
Demographic Name Changes for 2022–23 English Proficiency Deprecated Approved Accommodations Deprecated Eligible for Alt Assessment Deprecated Title 1 Status Deprecated
For districts that have used custom demographics in the past, Amplify is no longer supporting custom demographics for the 2022–23 school year to ensure we are aligned with best practices in data sharing.
If you’re planning to use student demographics, check back here for more details and next steps as we get closer to the upcoming school year.
What if my district is enrolling in mCLASS and another Amplify program?
If you are enrolling in multiple programs, you will upload and share your data via Admin Portal for all programs. Some exceptions may apply and can be addressed with your Customer Success partner.
What is an Amplify Customer Success partner?
Your Customer Success partner will be your point of contact throughout the onboarding process. They will work with you and the Amplify Enrollment and Licensing team to prepare and complete your data share.
How long will it take to set up Admin Portal?
You can anticipate the process to be completed within 5-7 business days.
How long will it take for my rosters to be available after batch upload?
Rosters shared via Batch Upload will display in Amplify programs, depending on the size of your users.csv file, within the hour for curriculum and after overnight processing for mCLASS.
