Student(s), parent(s), teacher(s) and manager(s) make up the members in a school. The Members module allows information about each school member to be added to a school’s NERSAPP Portal. To add members to the member’s module the following methods are available - adding a Member Single, adding Members in Batches and Upload members in Bulk. 


PS. Please ensure that you add a signature for your managers as this will show up on report cards and receipts.
