  • 2018–19 Roster Preparation

    Update 8/8: School Coordinators who had previously created roster upload files may begin uploading them into TIDE or creating rosters through the User Interface (UI). Note: Creating a roster upload file is optional. Coordinators may still have to make changes to reflect administration or as school enrollment changes.
