Validated Data

This rule is used to validate:

To perform this validation, the following information is used:

PASI will search for the student based on submitted:

Deactivated student data and student records for the submitted ASN or associated secondary ASNs are not considered as potential matches during the search.

The validation rule will pass if:

  • no matching student is found in the database

This rule is in effect for all school years.

Note: This rule does not apply to a Authority.
