            Setting the Metadata for the student is a critical step.  This identified the Dorm and Grade that a student belongs to.  Both of these fields are necessary for the student to appear in your various student lists (eg: Kiosk view, Rollcalls, etc). Your Grade and Dorm options are preset selectable fields.  Your Dorm and Grade levels are set in the "Lookups" section of your System Configuration. (see System Config >> Lookups)

                1. Select the Students Current location
