School ID Tutorial


School ID's are useful when doing Email Data Entry. Below we will demonstrate how to access them. Please note there are two school id's for legacy reasons. The legacy version is called School ID and the new recommended version is called Organization ID.

If you want some background about General Format for Email Data Entry Measurements a guide is available at the following URL https://www.globe.gov/documents/10165/0/GLOBE+Email+Data+Entry+Instructions.html in the section 'General Format for Measurements'. Included below is an excerpt:
 

  • The original-format of the school ID is an 8 character code that uniquely defines each school to the GLOBE data system. This ID is maintained for backward-compatibility, but is also generated for new organizations created through the new GLOBE website. This ID can be looked up through the GLOBE website, or provided by your Partner or Country Coordinator.

    for example:  GLIDN3JS
  • The new GLOBE website assigns a numeric number to every organization in GLOBE. If you prefer, you may use this ID instead of the old format. However, you must prefix the numeric ID with 'ORG_ID:'. This organization ID can be provided by your Partner or Country Coordinator.

    for example:  ORG_ID:
    10532858
