Roster exceptions

Roster exceptions are globally-applied rules that prevent specific users, or groups of users with email addresses matching a wildcard pattern, from being included in roster changes enacted by Little SIS Premium.

When you use the wildcard/pattern option, any asterisk (*) will get replaced with [a-zA-Z0-9.@]*. For example, *@stu*school.* would match,, etc.

Currently, roster exceptions apply to all classes across all jobs.

Roster exceptions might be useful in the following scenarios:

  • Where a list of para-professionals exists whose email addresses are frequently added by teachers as students (rather than co-teachers) in Google classroom.
  • Students who are auditing a course for independent study. These students are not on the official class roster within the SIS.
  • Where students have a medical or parental excuse for not participating in Google Classroom.

To add a roster exception, do the following:

  1. Access Little SIS for Classroom.
  2. Click the 9 box menu at the top left of the page.
  3. Click Sync.
  4. In the left navigation pane, click Jobs then Roster Exceptions.RosterExceptionAddButton.png
  5. Click +. The Add a roster exception pop-up opens.
  6. By default, the exception type is Email. If the type should be pattern-based, select Pattern from the Type drop-down. 
    • For email, you can specify the following: Email or Name, and Notes.
    • For pattern-based, you can specify the following: Pattern and Notes.
  7. Enter the criteria for the exception in the fields provided.
  8. Click Save. The new roster exception appears in the Roster Exceptions list.
