How to Create Student Accounts and Add Students to a Class

Teachers who do not use a program that does the rostering for you (ClassLink, Clever, or EdLink) can create student accounts and add students directly into a class.

If you log in by going to and use the red sign in button, you will be able to add students manually.

1. Once you have created your class(es) and have your class roster(s), to add students go to your dashboard, find the class, and select Roster from the class card.

This will take you to the Class Roster.

In the class roster area you have two options: 1. Add existing students (for students who already have an account) 2. Add new students (for students new to Gallopade)


For every student who used Gallopade Online last year, you will add their existing student account to your class. To Add Students with Existing Accounts:

1. Select the red +Add Existing Student button.

2. Find students by sorting or searching by username, first name, or last name.

3. Select Add for each student in the class. The white add button will change to a red Added  button once the student is selected. You can click Added to de-select. Then click Save in the upper right when ready. 


When adding new students, usernames should be unique. You may want to use school email addresses if your students have them. If not, we recommend using the following format  first.last.graduationyear@districtname (i.e. ben.button.2026@fayette) or keeping the format used in previous years.

To Add New Students: 

1. Click the red + Add New Student button.

2. Fill out all fields in the Add New Student form and Save.

*If you have multiple classes, repeat these steps for each class.
