Demographics

Schoolzilla Starter allows you to filter, view, and group students based on their demographics.

Demographic information comes to Schoolzilla Starter from your Renaissance software. If you are using the CDI service, that information may originate in your school information system. If not, some student information is entered when you add or edit students, and other information is set when you assign student characteristics to students in Renaissance. See the table below for more information.
