Back to Submission List SASID Request - Element List
Long Description
School districts are responsible to assign and track a state assigned student identifier (SASID). Each student should receive only one SASID and the SASID should remain with the student throughout his/her education in the state of NH. If the student transfers into a school district and was previously enrolled in a NH school, then the SASID should be in the students academic folder. Alternatively, the current district must contact the prior district to identify the SASID. A new SASID should not be created for the same student.

School Districts can request a SASID one at a time through a web-based tool, or submit a comma-delimited file that requests SASIDs for multiple students at one time. To request a SASID a school district must provide the following elements for each student.

If a student already has a SASID assigned, the system will prevent the creation of a duplicate SASID and provide contact information to locate the student's SASID.

State Legislation requires that the DOE does not keep a record connecting the name and the SASID. As such it is critical that the school maintains this information as part of the permanent file for the students. After requesting a SASID the system will return the SASID along with the LASID. The school can then update the record for each LASID it submitted with the new SASID.
