Set up Naviance for Districts

The following options are available for setup in your Naviance for Districts account:

When setting up a new district Naviance account, you must enter school ID numbers before importing student data from the district level.

Naviance recommends creating student groups so students can be assigned via a student data import and creating zones to restrict school-level access for district staff.

Zones

Use zones to:

  • Limit district staff access to only schools in which they work.
  • Analyze data for specific groups of schools.
  • Share data between schools in a zone using data consolidation.

  3. Select Edit.
  4. Enter an Abbreviation for the desired school.

Enter School ID Numbers

To import student data at the district level, you must assign a unique School ID number to each school in your district.

So data populates the correct schools in your district:

  • Ensure that each ID is unique.
  • Use IDs consistently when importing or updating student or other data.
  1. From Naviance District Edition, navigate to the gear icon and select Setup.
  2. Choose School IDs.

  3. Select edit.

  4. Enter an ID for each school.

  5. Click Update IDs.

Use Data Consolidation

To use data consolidation, ensure that you have set up zones.

By default, Naviance displays a school's historical student and college application data. If a school has little to no historical student and college application data, use data consolidation to share data from schools in a zone. Schools can continue to review historical data from only their school.

  1. From Naviance District Edition, navigate to the gear icon and select Setup.
  2. Choose Data Consolidation.

  3. If a school is Unassigned, open the corresponding list and choose a zone to which you want to assign the school. Only zones in which the school is a member are listed.

  4. Continue assigning a zone to all schools you want to consolidate data.
  5. Click Update. You can now review consolidated historical data for schools assigned to a zone.
