Q: How will the names transfer over from SIS to the new system? Legal name or name the child goes by?
A: Student names will transfer based on how they were entered in SIS, if the student has their nickname in SIS it will transfer over in eSchool, however, you should verify that it is in the correct field. When we enter students in eSchool we aim to enter legal names, however, there is a field for student's nickname in the Registration Information section that we encourage you to use.
