What is the setup process for syncing Seneca with my school system?
We will first request access to your school's MIS system through our secure school access partner Wonde. You can see a copy of the data-sharing agreement and the exact permissions required to sync with Seneca in the Wonde Portal.
Once we have access to user and class information from your school system we will conduct a "dry run" to check everything is ready to get started. We will then work with your data manager to fix any issues.
Once you are happy we will start syncing, send out login details and you will start getting all the benefits from our school MIS sync.

There will still be there but they will be under the archived tab. It is possible to unarchive them if they are still needed.
Can students leave or delete classes they are automatically added to?
No, one of the big benefits of classes synced from your school system is that students can't leave them. To remove a student from a class it must be done in the school system.
