Legal Name

Legal Name: School Directory Public Portal and Management Portal


Legal Name is the entity name associated with the federal employer identification number (FEIN) on file with the IRS. It should be used on all governmental forms including taxes and business incorporation. Local education agencies usually have a resolution from their governing agency (e.g., school board, independent governance board) confirming this information.

School Directory may not always have this information for all schools. When the legal name is not in the School Directory database, the value displayed is "Unavailable." 

USES: This data element is used to correctly identify LEAs and schools to their appropriate contacts in the School Directory Management Portal, as well as the School Directory Public Portal application.
