Native Access Template

This document is intended to help you complete your sites roster data template before making your initial sync with Next Gen Math. All template files should follow Next Gen Math’s template formatting requirements. We encourage you to read the instructions in this document thoroughly.

NOTE

Next Gen Math does not currently offer nightly syncs for native access sites. The template data detailed in this article is intended to be inserted once in the beginning of the school year. Any changes to staff or roster data during the school year can be managed through Next Gen Math's various user controls provided within the dashboard.

The Student data tab has the following fields to complete:

SFTP Access

Next Gen Math recommends using Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) for sending your site's completed roster data template. To receive access to our SFTP Server simply request a username and password from your contact at Next Gen Math.
