Student Detail View

The Student Detail View is the primary source of information in SEEDS4Schools. It contains all of the identifying data on a student and information regarding the areas of disability, consent dates, and other information needed for state and federal reports.

Adding a Student

Prior to adding a student, always search for the student by using the Advanced Search on the Dashboard. If the Advanced Search finds the student, Activate the student into the district.

When adding a new student into SEEDS4Schools, there are 4 required fields:

  • Last name
  • Gender
  • Birth Date
  • District of Residence

SEEDS will give an alert when a new student is added and they have the same last name/birthdate or the same WISEid as another student in the database. Do not add the new student. Search for the student using the Advanced Search on the Dashboard. If the existing student cannot be found, email


The Student Details tab collects the information about the student's demographics. The WISEid is required if the district shares data with WISEdata. This is also where the student's background data is added.

When an event is created for a student, a snap shot of the student and parents' demographic data is saved to populate the data on the forms in that event. If there is an update to the student or parent's demographics and the updates need to be reflected on the forms in the most current event, check the Apply changes to the current event check box to update the data in the form. This can also be done by clicking on the Update Info link noted below.

Parent/Guardian Details

The Parent/Guardian Details tab will populate data from the fields from the Student Details tab including the street address, city, state and zip code fields if the Use Student Details check box is checked. Select the relationship to the student from the Relationship drop down options. Check the Legal Guardian check box if appropriate. Parents with the Legal Guardian  check box checked will be included on label reports.

If the parents are together, add both parents to the same Full Name text box. If they are not together, create a separate parent guardian for each one. The parents' information prefills on forms. For example, on the I-1 Invite, there is a Dear field and it will offer a check box option for each parent/guardian added on this tab so an invite can be created for each of them if need be.

There can be up to ten different parent(s) or guardian(s) added.
