Hi all;

I am wondering how you are storing the Name/Gender information for
trans-gendered students in your current SISs.

In the past, we have changed the fields on our student's record.  Since we
manually submitted the student's data via the census, this was not an issue.

Now (however) our SIS Vendor will be pushing this data automatically for
us.  Currently, there is only one set of fields that contain the student's
name and gender.  I have been told by the AOE that we must submit a
student's legal name when collecting data. This would make our current
process of storing the legal name externally useless when submitting data.

Is anyone looking at this issue?  How do you handle it.  Do I understand
the issue correctly?

Thanks for any help you can give!
