Additional Filters allow a user to display a group of students (from the My Students tab) or alerts (from the Tracking tab) by selecting one or more search criteria. The criteria are all optional and listed below. Because this search combines criteria, it is recommended that you only select criteria that you are sure about. The results displayed must meet all of the criteria selected. 

IMPORTANT: When a filter is in place, a red checkmark will be visible next to the Additional Filters header. To remove ALL filters click the blue (X) below the red checkmark.
