The student table contains information about the students that receive disability services. A student record is created one time only. The student record is considered the master or parent record. The disabilities, accommodations, consent types, referrals, case notes, tasks, test scores, and class schedules are sub-tables or child records of the student record. The relationship is many children to one parent. In other words, the student record has many disabilities, accommodations, or case notes records related to it.

When the student record is deleted, all child records related to it are also deleted. This cascading deletion scheme is used so that the child records will not be orphaned.

The status field can be the value active, inactive, etc. It is used to determine if the student is using disability services.

The status field can be reset to inactive for all students at the beginning of each term. Then, as service providers work with students, the status field would be changed to active. By doing so, it would be possible to determine which students are active for the current term.


The fields of the students table are:
