School Lookup

New in 1.8, School Administrators and Transfer Specialists now have the ability to look up school names via the new School Lookup page

(The School Lookup option may be found under the Rule Management menu)

School Lookup provides an area to perform a keyword search for a school name, subsequently returning a list of possible matches.

 

For example, a search for "minn" in the school name generates dozens of matches:

Request New School

In the case where the school search returns no matches to the query, you may request a new school. The Request New School button (under the blue Search button) generates an Add School Request page:
