Change Information in the Master File
There may be times when the POS administrator may need to change or to view data in the a students master file. The master file contains the individual student’s demographic data. Most school districts have an update of the student demographic data from the district PEIMS information on a daily basis. If this is the case in your district then the need to manually change data in this file is probably rare. Districts that use the Lunch Application program will find that the completion and calculation of student applications interfaces with the student master file and updates the status of students and families automatically. In any case if one has to view or change these files this lesson will illustrate the procedure.
