If you don't see students in the Students App, here are the top reasons why.
No Students Appearing in the Students App
1. (Most Common): Incorrect Information in the SIS
Abre syncs data with your Student Information System (Alma, DASL/SI, PowerSchool, Infinite Campus, Etc.). If the information is wrong in the SIS, it will be wrong in Abre.
Contact the department or individual who maintains your school's SIS. Ask them to verify that the student is in the SIS correctly, and rostered to your class
Check Your Information Within the SIS
You may be in the SIS incorrectly as well. If you are seeing no students, then the issue is most likely due to an error in your personal data in the SIS. The most common issue is missing staff emails or incorrect staff emails.
2. Delayed SIS Sync
Most SISs do not provide real-time syncs with Abre. Rather, they provide a nightly sync. It can take between 24 and 48 hours for the new information to appear in Abre.
This is most common with students who change class schedules during the day. The change will not appear in Abre until after the sync.
You could verify the student is correct in the SIS and then wait. Or wait 24 hours before raising the issue with the individual who maintains your SIS.
3. No Students Are Not Rostered to You
Some staff members (for example, special education teachers, specialists, etc.) may not have students rostered to them in the SIS. They will need to manually add those students via custom groups.
