Pathways allows you to optionally record one or more parent or guardian relationships against a student profile. The ability to record multiple relationships is important where a student is in Pathways over a period of time and there may be a change of living arrangement and as such the primary guardian or parent.
If your program involves student placements, this guardian information may be important for when you prepare agreements or communications prior to, and during the placement.
Guardian and Parent Details
These details are most commonly used for mail merges later on so be sure to record everything you think you will need later in your workflow.
Note ticking the "Preferred" Parent/Guardian tick box will put a star against that Guardian and this is commonly used where there are multiple Guardian records for a student and you wish to indicate who the first point of contact is.
