This lesson will show you how to obtain the information needed to conduct a search in PowerSchool for a California student's SSID Number.
STEP 1: Identify students in PowerSchool who are missing their SSID #
Log in to the school's PowerSchool admin portal
STEP 2: Find the students who are still missing their SSID #'s
In the search box, enter "State_Studentnumber=". This will produce a list of any and all students who currently do not have an SSID # populated in the correct field in PowerSchool. If no student names are displayed, then all active students have an SSID #.
STEP 3: Select a student
Click on the name of one of the students. This will take you to the student's record.
STEP 4: Go to the State/Province-CA page using the blue navigation links in the left side navigation bar.
Note: Typically you need a few fields worth of information to locate a student's SSID #. These fields include the student's First, Middle, and Last Names, their Country, State, and City of birth, gender, date of birth, primary language spoken, and race/ethnicity. All of these fields can be found on the "STUDENT INFORMATION PAGE"
