Prevent Duplicate Student Records
When enrolling a student into your school, first perform a district‐wide search to verify whether or not there is an existing CPS ID number for that student. Note that preschool children who previously attended one of the state Pre‐K facilities will have an existing student ID.
Creating a new student ID when one already exists causes a break in the student’s enrollment history and may result in loss of student’s historical grades, attendance, and other vital information.
Clean‐up is time‐consuming and costly to the District.
Duplicate student records can be prevented by first searching for an existing student ID number.
