Accompanied Child--ID Needed?

Tourist

I cannot find an official answer to my question on the SW site.  Does my 16 yr old child travelling WITH me need an ID to get past security & board the plane?  We cannot locate her birth certificate at this time & all she has is a school ID.  The TSA site says no, but that each airline can make their own rule.  What is SW's policy?

 

Thanks!

Southwest follows TSA's rule. No ID needed.
