There are several student fields that will be the same for most of the students. These fields can be set with default values and only changed for the exception. Such fields are:
- Student Type - already set to 'Regular Student'
- FTE - already set to 1
- Maori Language Learning Level - to be set by the school or Hero data transfer specialist
- Zoning Status - to be set by the school. Do not set a default if the field is being included on your Enrolment Form for caregiver entry.
