This report from REL Appalachia seeks to alert administrators, school staff, and database managers to variations in the naming systems of other cultures; to help these staff accommodate other cultures and identify students consistently in school databases; and to provide information on other cultures’ naming conventions and forms of address to assist schools in registering students from other cultures appropriately.
