Student Maintenance: Add New Student

TWebSchAdmin 5.30.10 and newer

In Student Maintenance, Hover over Register Student, then Click Add New Student.

Begin by Searching

Searching helps prevent a Student new to your School from being entered into the system when they are already in your system. Since duplicate entries are not deleted – only made inactive – it's important to verify the Student is, indeed, new to your Board, by performing a search against the entire database. When you Click Add New Student, you arrive at the Student Search Window. Entering two letters of the Student's Surname and Clicking  Find  is enough to initiate the Search -- but the more info you fill into the Search Window, the more refined your Search will be. The less refined your Search is, the more likely your return will be: Too many rows returned, please narrow your search by defining additional criteria.

The screen is very sensitive. A student will not be found if his name is misspelled, or if any incorrect information is entered. If there is a long list of students, the correct student may not be noticed in the scrolling list, especially if his legal name is different from his preferred name. Note: Defining any of the following fields OEN, Student No and Minstry No will improve the chances of locating a student.

The search results will list all the students that match the combination of surname, first initial, gender and birthday, and all students that match the specified student number or the OEN (ministry number).

The results will display up to seven pieces of each matching-Student's information. To see the Student's Registration history, click the "i" button at far right. If you find the Student you want, and they are inactive -- or if your school is ConEd (summer or night), or if your Board allows multiple transfers -- then you can add the Student to your School. Select him/her in the far left Column and Click Select. 

Selecting the Student will bring you to their pre-filled Registration form, which shows you their current information in your database. If the Search didn't provide the correct Student, Click New (above Name) to open a blank Register form.
