There are a couple of ways you can achieve what you want. Have multiple pages that have your forms on them and then carry forward the values from the previous input's into hidden inputs on the next form. Or, save them after every page to the sql or whatever table, meaning you can easily implement a 'save and come back to' feature. Or, just have one massive long form :)

I think saving each page in a MySQL table is the best way.

Let's say that a student fills out his/her portion and needs the
parent to do the next step. They submit the first form and leave
for the day. The next day, the parent goes in, and it knows that
the first page is done, and continues on.

Also note ... a secure server should be used because this sounds like
it contains sensitive personal data. That being said, the scripting you
do should be rock-solid secure. If you're just learning PHP, I would say
this project should be checked by a professional programmer when
you are done.
