Student accounts are set up, modified, and inactivated within the Twine SIS by logging in at https://sis.choosetwine.com.
Adding an account
In the side navigation go to Students > Add a Student
Required fields for a new student account are:
- First Name
- Last Name
- Email (may be a unique ID that is not a true email address)
- Grade Level
- Attendance Start Date this School Year
Optional fiels include:
- Middle Name
- Custom ID
Any other fields are not synchronized to Edsby, and are not required.
When finished, click Save.
Each student record should be associated with at least one address. In some cases a student may have multiple addresses, for example one address associated with one parent and a second address for another parent.
The example below shows a student with two addresses:
New Address or Existing Address?
A new address should be added when creating a new student who does not have siblings already in the system, and does not have a parent/guardian who is in the system as a contact for another student.
If the student you are adding is associated with a parent/guradian whose address is already recorded, the Add an Existing Address function should be used. Otherwise, it is likely you will end up with duplicate parent/guardian accounts
Adding a New Address
When you are first creating a new student record it is not possible to access the address fields. After you have saved the General Info for your student account, a link will appear for Address & Contacts. Click the Address & Contacts link:
In the Addresses & Contact section, click Add a New Address:
Fill in The Address, City, State and Zip fields, and click Save:
Adding an Existing Address
To associate an address already in the SIS with the new student account you are creating, use the Add an Existing Address link:
You will be prompted to select an address from a list of addresses from your school. Note that you may enter a partial address or street name in the search field to narrow the list:
After selecting your address, click Save.
