PSSR-222876Implement Legal Name and Gender Fields

ID Student Demographics: Version 7.0
ID Student Course Enrollment Report: Version 5.8
ID Student Attendance Report: Version 4.8_ID Special Education Report: Version 4.2_
ID Gifted Report: Version 3.2

Legal First, Middle, Last name and Suffix fields are now available for use on the following pages:

  • Start Page > [select student ]> Demographics
  • Start Page > [select student] > State / Province ID> Student Information
    Legal Gender is available for use on the following page:
  • Start Page > [select student] > Demographics

The above fields can be used for students who need to have a different legal name or gender reported to the state. These fields do not need to be populated for every student; only when the student has a different, legal name or gender. For example, if a student has a preferred first name and a legal first name, the preferred name should be entered into the First Name field (First_Name) and the legal first name should be entered in the Legal First Name field. The legal last name field does not need to be populated if the legal last name already exists in the Last Name (Last_Name) field.


  • The Student Demographics report extracts the Legal First, Middle, Last Name and Suffix field values if they exist.
  • The Gifted, Special Education, Student Attendance and Student Course Enrollment reports are updated with Legal First Name and Legal Last Name columns when those reports are run in Audit mode.
