Address changes in Demographics should cascade to Contacts tagged as "Lives With" the student automatically
Address changes in STU should cascade to Contacts tagged as "Lives With" the student. If a contact is marked Y for Lives With, please have the contact address update automatically if there's a residence address change on the student's demographic screen.
Adding to this, maybe if there's a way to reverse link the address on the demographic screen with the contact(s) that also reside at this address - similar to how the Primary Contact 1 & 2 are linked from the Contact screen. It would also be nice if it would trickle to the siblings as well. I've just had to change the address on 3 students, then make sure their contacts were updated too.

It would be awesome if parent contact address updates would also update the demographics page address for the student if the "Lives With" box is checked, so that they don't need to be updated separately.

Agree with Amy and Susan, should be selected contacts or Lives with at Residence Address.
I added an idea that's very similar to this and agree that maybe different designations of Lives With or a pop up asking which contacts to update as well.
If a contact is marked Y for Lives With, please have the contact address update automatically if there's a residence address change on the student's demographic screen.

When a student has and address change, add the ability to update selected contacts with the address.

I LOVE this idea, but then there should be different codes for "Living With" to indicate
"Lives with student at the district residence address" and
"Lives with student at a different address"
for students who live with both parents at different addresses since only one of them could be the district residence address in the student address field.

This is dangerous. This means contact info will be updated without any knowing it's happening. Think of the following situation...Mother and Father separate. Mother moves to a new address with the student. Mother updates the school with her new address. The school updates the student's address. The mother's address is updated properly, but the father's address was also updated and no one knows it happened. It's better to have a standard edit that checks the contacts that are "in home" to make sure the addresses match. If they do not, someone needs to look into it. This way information is verified.
