Hi Sarah, I am a teacher who uses Buzz. I had the same question for 3 of my students.  We were going through the official channels in our district for completing a name change form that would change it in places like their email, but our Registrar who enrolls students in Buzz went in and changed their display name in Buzz.  Since Buzz is not our official grade book, Skyward is, we were able to make this change.  Hopefully you can find the right person in your child's school to help!
