How can staff see their next year's class/itinerant list?
After class lists have been set up for the next school year, under Users Database, there is a permission in the class list management section, "Check here to allow this user to see next school year's students". If this option is checked, the user will be able to see next year's class list, after they have been set up. The checkbox is un-selected annually on July 15th.
Is there a list of all the districts that use SEEDS?
Yes! View the districts that use SEEDS.
Which browsers must be used with SEEDS?
Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or Internet Explorer
I am unable to print labels. What's wrong?

How do I search for something on a page?
Control F (Command F on a Mac) opens "Find"
Is there a good way to see if data is missing on the Student Detail View?
Yes, use the "Export of Student Data" tool. It will show which fields are blank on the Student Detail View. The "Export of Student Data" tool is available by permission. If you do not see it under Reports ask your SEEDS administrator if you can have this permission.
What triggers a student's special education active/inactive status?
Special education active status requires:
-The student is attached (activated) to a district on the Student Detail View>Evaluation Details tab There is a Primary Disability selected
"Does Child Have an Impairment" is "Yes"
"Does Child Need Special Ed" is "Yes"
The list below will make the student inactive:

"Does Child Have an Impairment" is "No"
"Does Child Need Special Ed" is "No"
there is a Special Ed Dismiss date

How do I change a student's district of residence?
Changing the student's district of residence also changes who has access to the student. To change the student's district of residence, verify there are end dates on all of the enrollments and then inactivate the student by clicking the gray activate/inactivate button on the student's Student Detail View.
Then activate the student, selecting the correct district of residence and district of placement and open enrolled status if applicable.

Use the Advanced search and search by just the student's date of birth or WISEid.
Can I have two students up at the same time?

Why can't I find a student in the drop-down list to add to a class list?
