The Nebraska Department of Education assigns students a state ID as their primary means of identification for state reporting purposes. Acquiring state IDs from the NDE begins with exporting a student ID file containing basic student demographic information such as name, birthdate, and gender from jmc Office. Then, simply upload the student ID file to the NDE to acquire a State ID file of the selected students.

In jmc Office, head to Nebraska > State ID > Export Person ID File to acquire the student file that is uploaded to the NDE website.

Step One: Select "All Students", "Only Students with No State ID" or a specific grade from the "Grade level" drop-down list to acquire a State ID file of the selected students.

Step Two: Click the "Check Errors" button to have jmc automatically check for errors such as "No birth date" that might prevent acquiring IDs from the state.

Helpful Tip: Head to the View Student Data page, fix any errors listed on the error report and repeat step two until you are error free to ensure a successful file exchange.

Step Three: Click the "Start Export" button to create a student file to upload to the state website.

Step Four: Head to the Nebraska Department of Education portal to upload your student file and acquire student State IDs from the NDE.

Step Five: Enter student IDs in the "State ID" field on the "General" tab of the View Student Data page to enable state reporting for your students.
