FAQs, Details, and Points to Note
- Mother Record: The Mother field in the Parent/Guardian section should be completed with information about the student's birth mother. Due to potential changes in foster care or divorce and remarriage situations, it best helps in identifying the correct student record if the birth mother record remains the same person each time. Additional parents, such as stepmothers, foster parents, or legal guardians, can be entered in the Guardian or Other field.
- Emancipated Students: Students who are legally emancipated should be entered as their own Guardian in WISEid.
