Student File Attachment

Galileo users now have the option of adding attachments to a student’s record. These attachments can be accessed through the K-12 Student/Parent Center. Districts quite often mail out announcements or test results to the student and/or family. In certain states, the local department of education has turned over the responsibility of mailing out state test results to the school districts. In these budget conscious times, Galileo can save districts money on postage as well as labor, by mailing out announcements or test results.

On the Student Demographics page, there’s a link to “Add Student Files…” In addition, there’s an indicator as to how many files are attached so users don’t have to open the interface to find out.

When you click the "Add Student Files..." link, the Student Files page opens. There's no limitation as to the file type that can be added, and, currently, no size limit. The option is given to add a file description. The final step is attaching the file and selecting the “Add” button.

The attachments/files are viewed in the K-12 Student/Parent Center. Once the student/parent logs in with the unique student user account, select the “more options” label/“Student Files” link to view the attachments.

If the view/binocular is selected, the file attachment will open.
