SA

Dues
... as the SA Chair, please remind your members to renew their MTNA dues if they haven't already, and to update all notes and school grades in every student record in their dashboard.  For this year's enrollment, they should add a note indicating it is for the 2018-2019 school year.

Middle Names
TMTA asks for students' middle names in the SA registration.  It helps them to identify student records of students who transfer teachers.  They´re trying to avoid having to ask for social security numbers. In your studio registration form, you should ask for students' middle names.
