Before editing any existing Student’s information, you need to find the Student Record. Review Finding Existing Students for more details. Once you have found the Student whose information you want to edit, click the corresponding Student ID to disclose the Student Record dialog.
At the upper-right corner of the dialog you have the option to select or deselect the Locked and Inactive status of the Student. Then, similarly to what is explained in the Add New Student section, follow these steps:
If necessary, select the Transportation Modes and Exception Reasons from the corresponding drop-down menus.
After you complete the Student’s Residence information, you have the option to copy such data as Pick Up or Drop Off information as well. This will save you time when entering Transportation data.
To do so, click Copy as Pick Up or Drop Off as preferred. Then, you will find the same data within the Transportation window. To review, find the Transportation tab on top of the New Student window and click on it. Then:
Move on to District Fields by clicking on the District Fields tab next to the Main tab if you need to add, edit or delete any of them. Then:
Remember that most Items have Yes or No Values (e.g. a Student will or will not have a particular health problem), although certain District Fields might need more specific Values.
Student records can never be deleted. On the contrary, they are always kept in the database. However, users might want some Students to be temporarily or permanently removed from their workflows so that they don’t affect the routing plans. In order to get this done, users have the option to set Student records to Inactive.
To assign this status:
Notice that when Inactive, a Student won’t be listed in any search results unless the Inactive filter is selected first within the comprehensive set of search filters. Remember that these filters are hidden by default but you can always disclose them by clicking on the Expand icon next to the Find button. The complete set of filters will be displayed above.
