Updating Bus Assignments
At this time, there is no built-in utility that would allow the average user to upload student bus assignments directly into Schooltool to update multiple student records at once. Instead, the following steps must be performed.
- Use your schools transportation program (i.e. Transfinder, VersaTrans) to create a data file in the format illustrated in the following template:

**Hint: The column names and order of the columns in the data file you create are very important, and must match EXACTLY what is illustrated in the template above.
- **IMPORTANT** Confirm that the Bus Numbers that students were assigned to in your Transportation Program EXACTLY MATCH those that are entered in the Transportation Module of Schooltool (Transportation>Maintenance>Bus). If not then manually enter or edit any bus numbers that do not match what's in your Transportation system, into Schooltool before completing the next step
- Once you have confirmed that the bus numbers entered in Schooltool match the bus numbers students have been assigned to in your Transportation program, submit the following form:
SUBMIT THE STUDENT BUS ASSIGNMENT UPDATE REQUEST
Once we receive the form, we will then submit a case to the vendor for Schooltool requesting that your data file be processed, and the bus information uploaded into Schooltool.
