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
Sharing your data
Amplify has launched a new application called the Admin Portal. This is a tool that all district staff can utilize; IT managers, administration, and teachers, and will be accessible through learning.amplify.com. Here, you’ll upload your enrollment CSV files or enter your rostering data directly into Amplify for all Amplify programs. You’ll then verify the accuracy of your rosters. Your Customer Success partners will confirm they are able to see the data and complete your setup.
The Admin Portal was designed to enhance the enrollment process by providing district administrators the ability to:
- Create new schools
- Create accounts for teachers, other staff members, and students
- Create classes and add teachers and students to those classes
- Add Amplify program access to classes
- View which Amplify programs teachers and students have access to
Quick and easy updates and access
After new staff and students are added, they should be able to log in within the hour. When making an update to your roster via the Admin Portal, Amplify will process that update and grant new students, classes, or staff access to your purchased Amplify programs. Your school district will not need to notify Amplify of these changes, the programs will be available for your students and staff within 24 hours.
Check the Getting Started tab below for additional resources to support your enrollment as we approach the school year.
- CSV Support
mCLASS enrollment 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.
OneRoster CSV support
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 support
The use of Simple 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.
- Changes to Demographic Data
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 with another Amplify program?
If you are enrolling in multiple programs, you will upload and share your data via Admin Portal for all programs.
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 complete my data share?
You can anticipate the process to be completed within 1-2 business days.
