Why can't I set email to be required in the Family Information part of the Student Registration form?

If we allowed changes to be made to the Email field's settings, users would be able to delete or rename the field, which would break major functionality in the tool. Many churches complained when we had the email field set to be required, as they want to be able to register students even if they don't have an email address for them. (If the field is required, it is required everywhere, both on the public page and in the admin.) The current setup allows parents the choice of whether to receive email updates, and lets directors add students without emails or unknown emails. That being said, directors are able to request that we make that field required and we can make that change for you.
