Student ID should be encrypted in database

Description

Student ID number should be encrypted in the database by default since it is personal information and because some schools are still using SSNs. This raises the question of whether Student ID should be an editable field, which would also require decryption in order to allow editing or viewing. No viewing is currently necessary other than the ability to edit.

This is no longer an issue as I have removed "Student ID" from the system. Its inclusion was arbitrary and until there is a defined need for the Student ID to be stored, it will not be.
