New SSID's from CALPADS to Powerschool

I have the .txt file from CALPADS with the new SSID's, but I can't find the procedure for how to batch import them into Powerschool.  Got this far:  Special Functions/Importing & Exporting/Data Import Manager.  But do I need to convert the original caret delimited file to a tab delimited file Excel file so I can put column titles on ?  And what column titles do I need?  Any input would be helpful.

Thanks, Barbara

Hi @blougee,


Thank you for posting your question in the PowerSchool Community!


We do have a method to import the SSID file into PowerSchool SIS. That method is detailed in the California State Reporting Guide in the Statewide Student Identifier (SSID) section here:


Please let me know if this was helpful in answering your question, or if I can be of further assistance.
